A new fundraising pitch from the Obama campaign shows rising concern over the crowds being drawn by team Romney-Ryan.

Paul Bedard writes in The Washington Examiner’s Secrets column that an email went out from Obama’s Chicago re-election headquarters about the “disturbing report” that a North Carolina rally with Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan drew 15,000.

“There's no spinning that number. It's a LOT of people, and the Republican base in energized. And that's not all. Since the VP announcement, Romney's campaign has brought in over 70,000 donations from his Tea Party base. We've got to step up our game and mobilize our supporters — starting right now.”

The email then ends with a pitch for a campaign contribution.

“We can't let the Republicans claim the momentum. Donate $3 or whatever you can,” The Examiner reported.
