I just received this e - mail from the Democratic Headquarters

There are only 65 hours until polls open -- so we’ll be blunt. These three developments could spell disaster:

The Florida special election is TIED.
Boehner and his allies have spent over 5 million dollars(!) to keep this seat in Republican hands. We’ve never seen anything like it.
With less than 65 hours before polls open, we’re in real danger of falling behind on our voter outreach campaign.
There is no time left to wait. If we don’t fight back now, we will have no shot on Election Day. The only way we'll be able to hand Boehner painful losses on Republicans' home turf is with a surge of grassroots support.

It’s going to cost us $154,000 to get out the vote and put the final ads on the air we need to win toss-up races like this. Can you rush a donation today?

I just sent them money. There is no  poll cited. I have seen other polls that show Alex Sink ahead in a district that was suppose to be "Safe Republican?
Why the panic? At least cite a poll. Also this is Saturday, when can you do between now and Tuesday.
Can we stop the panic button. and get people to the polls. Thats how you win. Identify your voters and knock on their doors Drive them to the polls. Leave the Koch Brothers to flood the airwaves with nonsense. Thank you

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
