Obama Campaign Manager Airs Cash Woes In Video

Barack Obama's campaign is known for its fundraising success. But today, campaign manager David Plouffe sends out a message to supporters warning of Republican dominance:

The McCain campaign is bragging that they are out-raising and out-spending us.

By collecting huge checks from Washington lobbyists and special interest PACs, they raised more money than ever before in June. Combined with the Republican National Committee, they now have more than $95 million in cash on hand.

I recorded a short video in my office about what we are up against. Now is the time to step up and make your first donation to help us close the gap.

Please watch the video and make a donation of $25 now.

The RNC has been quietly gathering funds at private events. The Democratic National Committee, meanwhile, was broke by the end of last year and still lags far behind.
