Dear Ajay,

With six weeks left until the midterm elections, and Republicans getting desperate, the GOP wants everyone to know they’ve got a massive cash load that will unleash a brutal pushback against Democratic momentum.

Paul Ryan’s super PAC alone has committed $85 million to attack candidates on the left in congressional races across the country. And in a recent report to The Hill, the RNC revealed it had raised a record amount of more than $250 million this election cycle.

This expensive damage control comes as no surprise. After all, multiple GOP leaders spent the past few weeks publicly admitting that conventional metrics and palpable enthusiasm on the left predict favorable election outcomes for Democrats.

Republicans can flex their wallet to make themselves feel better all they want, but the incredible energy on the left isn’t based in naive optimism. It’s coming from a truly collective mobilization to take back our country this November.

Small-dollar donors are continuing to give at a record rate and have already pitched in over $125 million on ActBlue in September so far. They’re powering thousands of Democratic candidates who have a real shot at clinching Congress but face a big uphill battle against the GOP’s attacks in upcoming weeks. We’re working extra hard to make sure our nonprofit fundraising platform can keep up with unprecedented traffic — will you chip in $5 to support our work?

The chair of the RNC says Republicans are “ready to defy history on November 6th” and keep their control of Congress.

The GOP’s definition of defying history may be to call up its mega-donor pals and use their millions to essentially buy electoral victories. But our definition of defying history is turning hard organizing work and grassroots giving into a more democratic Congress this November. It’s all hands on deck for us, and we can’t stop now.

The clear trend on the left is one of electric momentum. A relentless movement of small-dollar donors has consistently grown leading up to the elections, and folks are showing no signs of giving up now.

Grassroots donors are contributing at historic rates to thousands of Democrats on ActBlue who need these resources more than ever to reach supporters and get out the vote. Will you chip in $5 to help us keep up our platform in our busiest time yet?
