Hillary Clinton’s campaign has sent out another email Monday morning, in a desperate plea for more donations.
According to Clinton’s campaign manager, they’re in hot water, lagging behind, and at a terrible time in the election as well.
They’re concerned that Trump might outraise them – which means that his team is “more prepared than we are.”
NBC News reports that The DNC, Clinton and her super PACs actually raised a total of $94.5 million for the month of July – compared to $68.3 million that the RNC, Trump and his supporting super PACs have raised.
The real panic on the Clinton team is suspected to be that she’s not further ahead in spite of the fact that she has consistently outspent Trump on advertising.
Here’s the email:
I’ll be straight with you — August isn’t shaping up to be our best month in terms of fundraising.
We’re still lagging behind where we were in July, and the timing isn’t ideal. The first ballots will be cast in a matter of weeks, so we need to have a comprehensive, well-staffed and well-funded ground game to make sure that they’re cast for Hillary.
I know many people are enjoying their summers and trying to think about anything other than this election. But we need to raise $10 million by the end of the month to keep our budget on track — and we’re only 64% to goal right now.
Don’t let the August lull get to you. Chip in right now, get a free sticker, and help us end the day at 75% to goal.
How much we raise in August matters. This is our last FEC report before early voting begins. It’s our last chance to show people how strong and committed we are before they make their final decision about whom to support.
If Trump outraises us because his team rose to the occasion, it won’t just look bad. It will mean his team is more prepared than we are — right as people begin to cast their ballots.
You’ve carried us this far. We’re almost to the finish line. But these final weeks are the most crucial of the entire eighteen-month race. We can’t drop the ball now. We can’t let up. Let’s make the final push, get to $10 million, and show Donald Trump that this team is an unbeatable force:
Hillary for America
