The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is hoping that fear will cause Democrats to donate money. The latest plea comes in an email with this subject line: "kiss all hope goodbye."
"Today, in a closed door meeting, Boehner announced he’s transferring $1,5OO,OOO.OO into Republican campaign coffers dedicated to growing the Tea Party majority," the opening of the email reads.
"This news could not come at a worse time. Earlier this month, Boehner authorized $3O,2OO,OOO.OO targeting top Democrats nationwide.
"Frankly, we weren't expecting to face this avalanche of Republican cash just days before the biggest midterm fundraising deadline so far this year.
"If we get crushed, we can kiss all hope of stopping Boehner goodbye.
"Right now, we need 5,000 supporters to step up to the plate today to keep pace. Will you help us get there?"
