The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) is offering a one-day deal in hopes of boosting contributions in its fight to keep the Senate, by promising, in an email pitch signed simply "Barack Obama," to triple-match any donations that come in on Monday.

"If the GOP gains just six seats, the same Republicans who just voted to sue me will control both Houses of Congress," the Obama-signed pitch says. "Republicans will control everything in Congress from Medicare to education. I don't need to tell you how devastating the consequences would be."
But mobilizing voters doesn't come cheap, the email says, and launching field offices and "recruiting new volunteers takes time and work, and it's not cheap."
Democrats are facing challenges from having an increasingly unpopular president in their party to fighting a lack of voter interest and redistricting efforts that benefited the GOP.
According to the Federal Election Commission, the DSCC has already raised $103.5 million
this election cycle, compared to the $76.5 million brought in by the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Democrats would need to win 17 seats
to regain the GOP-controlled House and defend 21 seats in the Senate to maintain control there.
