I corrected this post to note that this fundraising drive is for Barack Obama’s campaign, not the DNC. But you should give to the DNC as well!
Barack Obama is going to accept the Democratic nomination for president at Mile High Stadium in Denver in front of an estimated 75,000 people.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean sent out an e-mail today asking for donations to
the DNC the Obama campaign, with an extra incentive backing up his fundraising pitch.
If you make a donation before midnight tomorrow, you could be part of a very special opportunity. Ten supporters who give before the July fundraising deadline will be selected for an all-expenses-paid trip to Denver. You’ll get to bring a guest, fly to Denver, spend a couple days at the convention, and meet Barack before his speech.
Donate today, and you could go Backstage with Barack:
Make a donation before the deadline
The full text of Dean’s e-mail is after the jump.
Remember that the Republican National Committee has been raising more money this year than the DNC and will be spending it on behalf of John McCain. It’s not enough for the Obama campaign to raise money–the DNC also has to be competitive in fundraising.
