(Newsmax) – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid revealed on Friday that the Democratic Party is in “deep trouble” in the upcoming midterm elections.
In a breathless fundraising email pitch with a subject line “deep trouble” which was obtained by Newsmax, Reid says: “The polls say it better than I ever could: We need you to make a contribution BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT.”
He backs up his worry with new polls that show Republican candidates neck-in-neck with their Democratic challengers in four key Senate races.
SEND CONGRESS A PINK SLIP: Gun grabs, Martial Law, amnesty, executive orders, unconstitutional laws, bypassing Congress and the Constitution— Obama has committed a string high crimes and misdemeanors. YOU can send a PINK SLIP to every member of Congress putting them on notice: “IMPEACH OBAMA NOW OR WE’RE KICKING YOU OUT!”
In North Carolina, Thom Tillis (R) and Kay Hagan (D) each have 41 percent of the vote; in Colorado, Cory Gardner (R) with 44 percent and Mark Udall (D) with 45 percent; in Arizona, Tom Cotton (R) with 42 percent and Mark Pryor (D) with 43; and in Arkansas, Dan Sullivan (R) with 37 percent and Mark Begich (D) with 42 percent.
To emphasize the need for donations, Reid includes the amount of money he claims Republican strategist Karl Rove has pumped in to each race: $3.5 million in North Carolina; $2.8 million in Colorado; $1.7 million in Arizona; and $1.8 million in Arkansas.
“Karl Rove’s $10 million spending spree could put Republicans in the driver’s seat in the four states he’s targeting,” Reid says.
“Polling is close in 11 states, and only six seats protect us from Republican control over everything from health care reform to the Supreme Court. We’re matching all contributions 3-to-1 – but only until midnight tonight.”
The letter asks for contributors to kick in donations in amounts of $3, $8, $17, $25 or $35.
“If we hit our goal tonight, that money will be answering attacks in Senate battlegrounds like North Carolina and Colorado come tomorrow morning,” Reid implores.
“But if we fall short, Rove could seize the momentum – and we might not have time to get it back. Only you can stop Karl Rove and the Republicans … This is a key moment in our fight to keep our majority strong.”
Rove has been in a thorn in the side of Democrats this month, sparking their anger with an inquiry about the health of former Secretary of State and presumed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
