Vice President Joe Biden is warning Democratic donors that their money is needed to avoid ending up with a Senate full of Ted Cruz-like tea party Republicans.

"We could lose," reads the headline on Biden's fundraising email sent out Sunday, just ahead of Monday's first-quarter deadline.

"If we wake up on Tuesday and find out we came up short, we're in bad shape for November – that is not hyperbole," Biden writes. "Losing will mean more senators like Ted Cruz, and more Tea Party Republicans in the House."

The end-is-near rhetoric is nothing new to fundraising letters, and The Washington Examiner's Paul Bedard writes that Democrats actually aren't having much trouble bringing in cash. They are, however, having trouble wooing voters to their candidates, he said.

The grass-roots tea party movement just marked five years of existence, and takes credit for Republican gains in the House of Representatives in 2010. Prognosticators from Larry Sabato to Nate Silver are predicting the GOP will hold onto the House and take over the Senate in this year's midterms.

A victory will likely intensify the tensions between establishment Republicans and tea party members, who believe it is their influence that has brought the party success. They are likely to demand a more conservative shift in the GOP, Breitbart.com says.
