The Democrats explain how they did it. A little foreshadowing?

Cindy —

Our friends at the Democratic National Committee laid it all on the line to bring change this year.

We’ve been reviewing the books, and the DNC went into considerable debt to secure victory for Barack and Joe. It took unprecedented resources to staff up all 50 states, train field organizers, and build the technology to reach as many swing voters as possible.

It worked.

But it also left the DNC in debt. So before we do anything else, we need to help pay for this winning strategy.

Make a donation of $30 or more now and you’ll get a limited edition 2008 Victory T-shirt.

Help the DNC and get a 2008 Victory T-shirt

The DNC’s 50-state field strategy was crucial to our campaign’s success, as well as victories for Democrats up and down the ballot. Their organizing infrastructure allowed us to compete — and win — in states that seemed insurmountable just four years ago.

They took out substantial loans to make it happen. The DNC didn’t hold back, and now, neither can we.

You were there for this campaign when we needed to reach out to more voters and compete in more states. Now we’re relying on grassroots supporters like you to come through for this movement once again.

We’ll get to work transforming this country. But first, we need to take care of the DNC.

Please make a donation of $30 or more today and receive your Obama Victory T-shirt:

Thank you for everything,


David Plouffe
Campaign Manager
Obama for America


  1. Tinkerbell says:

    Hmmm, I wonder if David Plouffe would be interested to share what was used as collateral on the loans? Or were they signature loans? What were the terms – length of time and interest rate? What financial institutions provided them? We want balance sheet detail.

    We read so much in the mainstream media about this being the largest most successful campaign fundraising ever…. and yet they overspent! Oh, do tell!!

  2. It’s not even a good-looking shirt.

  3. Sounds like Plouffe was in cahoots with the people at Central would got the new stadium built!

  4. Randy in Richmond says:

    A limited edition shirt–limited to the number of people who send in $30 or more.

  5. How about a fundraiser for the US Treasury?
