  •  I just got a call from the DNC (I think it was) (0+ / 0-)

    The call was to raise funds to run ads for Obama in the battleground states to counter the Romney ads.

    They asked me for a donation of $7000!  Egads!

    Since I donated to the Obama for America site last week and will be attending a fundraiser this Saturday run by a NYC friend who owns a restaurant, I demurred from any amount.  But a $7000 as a first pitch?  Wow!

      who are now getting into the game.  In some cases people who were sitting on the fence have simply been appalled by Romney and Ryan.  But more so, people are concluding that Obama is going to win and want to get on board so they can say "I was with you."

      People are also looking at the real possibility of Democratic control of both chambers of Congress, and realize that might be better for them than the continued gridlock with the Tea Party in the House.

      I suspect that various Democratic organizations are going to have an abundance of late cash in the next 5+ weeks.

      •  I;m not quite sure hw I got on the "big donor" (0+ / 0-)

        list.  :-D

        I did max out my contributions to the Obama campaign last go round.  But this time the cash situation isn't so flush.  It's quite a leap to go from $2500 to $7000!
