Joe Biden's Promise to Obama Tonight

Posted: Oct 11, 2012 6:54 PM

Joe Biden has sent an email to supporters asking for donations and explaining the promise he made to President Obama going into tonight's debate in Danville, KY.

Friend --

I told Barack I have one mission tonight: tell the truth and stand up for what we believe in.

Our side is always going to win when we do that.

But, Katie, take a look at what we're up against this week:

     -- It's one of the last four weeks we have remaining.
     -- This week alone, the other side is spending nearly $37 million on Mitt Romney's behalf in eight battleground states.
     -- The resources we have in the bank at midnight tomorrow will determine how big we can go for our final push.

It's urgent that everyone dig deep -- and fast. That means you.

Donate $5 or more right now, before I head up on that debate stage.

I can't predict if Paul Ryan will follow Mitt Romney's lead tonight, hiding and flat-out denying their unpopular ideas, or if he'll come prepared to have a real debate about where this country should go.

Trust me, I'm ready for anything, but I can't do this alone.

Your donation will put us in the strongest position possible tomorrow, ahead of a major budget-decisions deadline.

Please donate $5 or more today:

Thanks for your support tonight.


Tell the truth, eh? Maybe he should check with Stephanie Cutter on that one.
