CNN host Stephanie Cutter, who worked on President Obama's reelection campaign, has sent a fundraising email on behalf of Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.
"Hey there," Cutter begins. "Another poll came out this week showing Terry McAuliffe with a marginal lead over Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia governor's race. Most people I know were thrilled. But I got nervous."
Here's why: the easiest way to lose any election is to get complacent. And with the Tea Party fundraising machine pouring millions into Virginia to elect their poster boy Ken Cuccinelli, we could be in real trouble if we let up for even a second.
Donate $5 or more right now to support Terry — he can't win this without your help.
Because of the grassroots movement behind him, Terry's been able to tell his story all over Virginia. And as undecided voters get to know him (and learn all the great things you and I already know), they're coming to our side.
But Terry's not the only one talking to them. His opponent is out on the trail and in voters' living rooms every night with attack ads funded by Super PACs with near-limitless resources.
As Deputy Campaign Manager for President Obama's reelection campaign last year, I saw a grassroots movement overpower those Super PACs once. We can do it again, but only if we all step up.
What we do this week will determine which campaign is in a better position to make its closing argument over the next five.
Terry's facing a major fundraising deadline on Monday and right now he's $80,247 short of his goal. Will you chip in $5 to help him get there — and win this election?

According to a new ebook by Glenn Thrush, President Barack Obama's top political adviser, David Axelrod, had a spat with Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager for the president's reelection campaign.
"If there was a flash point, it came in March, according to three people close to the situation," writes Thrush. "Axelrod got wind that a producer at a network morning show had been asking for him to appear – only to be told by a junior staffer that Cutter, who had been conspicuously upping her TV appearances, could substitute."

Surprisingly, the two most popular surrogates are Robert Gibbs and Stephanie Cutter.
