A message from Ken Mehlman...

GOP.com 'The Final Stretch'Dear Fellow Conservative,

Everything is on the line.

It's more than just the House, the Senate, and 36 governorships. It's whether the President's efforts to keep Americans safe will grind to a halt with Democrats in control of funding every aspect of the War on Terror... whether Democrats will be allowed to carry out their threat to raise your taxes by $2.4 trillion... whether Democrats will get their wish of investigating - and maybe even impeaching - our President.

With so much at stake, the Republican National Committee will hold nothing back in this fight. Recently, I made the decision that the RNC will spend whatever it takes - $60 million or more, the RNC's entire budget - to maintain our majorities. We are within sight of meeting this ambitious financial goal - but we aren't there yet.

Will you put us in position to win by donating $250, $100, $50, or even $25 to the RNC's Emergency Fund?

We are facing the brutal reality that we will be outspent in this tough fight. The Democrats, their special interest union allies, and angry left-wing groups like MoveOn.org plan to spend more than $120 million in their desperate bid to make Nancy Pelosi the next Speaker of the House. With the clock ticking to Election Day, we still need your support to stop that from happening.

A commitment like this is unprecedented in politics. The Hill newspaper calls it "a record for a national party committee in a midterm election."

Democrats...Then and NowWhy are we staking everything on this extraordinary effort? Because we know that the plan works. Recently, National Journal's Hotline wrote that the RNC's get-out-the-vote program works to "expand the universe" of Republican voters, and "surpassed expectations."

We also know that when Americans hear our message, they rally to our cause. We saw it in 2002, we saw it in 2004, and we're seeing it again in 2006. An ABC News poll out this week shows that voters trust Republicans more on the issues, and a flurry of recent polls shows Republicans moving up in the battle for control of Congress, confirming that this will be another tough, close election.

This forward momentum can only continue with your help.

With a fight this tough and angry Democrats so emboldened to take power, your Party won't leave anything on the field. We are committing everything to this fight. Will you join in this unprecedented effort?

Ken Mehlman
Chairman, Republican National Committee
