Barbara Streisand, Hollywood mega star and Obama supporter, sent out an emergency email to the entire Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee mailing list to get everyone to pony up and give President Obama some last minute donations. President Obama is in the homestretch of his battle for a second term against Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Streisand said in her email:
“The Democratic Party urgently needs your help. We’re just weeks from the most important election in a generation and every single thing Democrats like you and I spent a lifetime fighting for is on the line. Republican Super PACs are pounding President Obama and Democratic candidates with millions of dollars of vicious attack ads. And, they could tip the balance of the election for Tea Party extremists. That would be a disaster for America and we can’t let it happen. We must close the funding gap… It’s up to you and me to make this happen. Please rush an emergency contribution right away while there’s still time. President Obama needs a new Democratic Majority to get America moving again.”
