President Barack Obama’s supporters received an “urgent” email on Friday — a call for campaign cash.

“Romney and the Republicans announced yesterday that they brought in more than $100 million in June,” writes campaign manager Jim Messina in the email, The Weekly Standard reports. “For context, that’s about what we raised in April and May combined.

“We’re still tallying our own numbers, but this means their gap is getting wider, and if it continues at this pace, it could cost us the election.”

The communication refers to such supporters of GOP candidate Mitt Romney as Charles and David Koch, casino and hotel magnate Sheldon Adelson and political strategist Karl Rove — and seeks contributions of $3 or more.

“If we don’t take this seriously now, we risk finding ourselves at a point where there is too much ground to make up,” Messina said.
