LOUISVILLE – Team Mitch today released the following statement and background information on Barack Obama sending a fundraising email to his liberal allies urging them to donate to the campaign committee backing Alison Lundergan Grimes.
"All of the clay pigeons Alison Lundergan Grimes went through trying to convince Kentuckians that she is not Barack Obama were for nothing, as Obama himself is now urging his liberal allies nationwide to donate to the committee currently running $1.5 million in ads on her behalf so together they can further implement his harmful liberal agenda," said Team Mitch spokeswoman Allison Moore.

Subject: I need you
Friend -- We’re at a crucial moment -- please don’t skip this email:
With less than six weeks left, control of the Senate is a tossup. Ten key races are tight, and if the Republicans win just six seats, they’ll take control.
We can’t leave this up to chance. You have a choice: Will you help us mobilize voters in battleground states and keep the Senate? Or will you stand by and let the Republicans take control of the Senate?
The choice you make right now will decide the outcome of the Senate -- and the work we can do for the rest of my presidency. Time is running out.
Will you pitch in to our voter mobilization program to keep the Senate? Your gift will be triple-matched until midnight.

Or donate another amount.
I know from my own campaigns: The last few weeks are the most crucial. In an election this close, we need every single one of you engaged.
Your support has already helped us make incredible progress. With all hands on deck, we’ll be able to keep the Senate.
This is when I need you the most.
Will you pitch in today so we can go on offense and win? I can’t stress enough how critical it is that you act today.
With your help, we’ll win this one.
