Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz sent an email to supporters updating them on the Democrats strategy to win elections in 2014 and urged them to donate to put the plan into place. Here's what she had to say:
One of the things you learn right away in Democratic politics is that there's no magic to winning elections -- and that's actually good news.
What you really need is good strategy, smart people, and ideas you're proud to stand behind -- all of which we have. But it also takes a lot of hard work to tell our story to voters.
The first thing we're going to decide in 2014 will be how much we're able to do -- and our decision will be based heavily on the resources we have at the end of the year. So if you're willing to back up our plan to win next year, please donate $10 or more right now.
Here's what we're doing with your support:
1. Recruiting and training organizing talent across the country.
2. Maintaining and building our digital edge.
3. Expanding access to the ballot box.
4. Holding Republicans accountable and promoting the Democratic agenda.
If we continue doing these four things with all our resources, all our party's talent, and all the energy and passion of supporters like you and me, I guarantee you we'll see more Democrats elected in 2014.
Chip in before our last deadline of 2013 to make sure we can execute our full plan to win in 2014:
We can't just leave this to chance -- in the next few days, we have to be absolutely certain that we'll have the resources now to start executing our strategy.
Thanks for doing your part,
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Democratic National Committee
P.S. -- My first meeting of 2014 will be to review how much we raised between now and the end of the year, and to decide whether we can do all of the things we need to do to win in 2014. Pitch in to make sure we can.
