Biden: "Barack and I aren't going to let them"

"Dear Arnaldo --

According to our records, you are currently living in California's 30th Congressional District. So, some folks I know need your help.

I'm talking about a few senators who right now are in tough election fights because they've defied some of the most powerful special interests on Capitol Hill. People like Barbara Boxer in California, Patty Murray in Washington, and Harry Reid in Nevada.

They are being targeted because they did the right thing. Because they chose to take on the tough fights to make our country stronger.

But these aren't just good people. They're our best allies.

And the President and I are doing everything we can to support them so we can continue this work -- but we need your help as we approach Election Day.

Over the past few months, Organizing for America has made an unprecedented investment in on-the-ground organizing. But we need you to help us finish strong.

Please donate $3 or more today to help make sure our plans include support for as many of these allies as possible.

The stakes in this election couldn't be higher.

Outside interest groups are spending hundreds of millions of dollars targeting these folks with attack ads. And these groups can go after as many of these folks as they want -- with the help of unlimited corporate money, without ever disclosing who's paying for the attacks.

Just take a look at the people these groups are helping. Take one hard look at what these guys stand for. It's not just a one-way trip back to the failed economic policies that drove our economy into a ditch -- it's worse.

If we give them back the keys, they'll lower the minimum wage. They'll privatize Social Security. They'll double down on the record deficit they created by extending the irresponsible tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans.

Barack and I aren't going to sit around while these special interests try to take our country backward.

The fact is, we are fighting alongside our allies in Congress for something big -- working to build a stronger foundation for our country. When you're doing that, almost every vote is hard. Almost every vote requires courage and backbone.

And, I'll be honest with you: We never would have been able to make the historic progress we've made if these folks had decided to play it safe.

They chose to fight -- and I'm glad they did. That's why you and I need to stand with them over the next two weeks. The President and I need them to help us move America forward.

And we need your help in these critical last two weeks.

Whatever you can chip in today means we can take this fight to more close races across the country. Your support means our volunteers can talk to more voters on the ground. It keeps our message on the airwaves. It means vital resources to get voters to the polls on Election Day.

Please donate $3 or more today and help us fund our Vote 2010 plan:

Joe Biden"
