We're on the clock. The end-of-quarter fundraising deadline is at midnight tomorrow, and I need your help to close the fundraising gap.

Click here to make a contribution before tomorrow's fundraising deadline.

Thanks to your help, we've been surging in the polls. But that's only emboldened the opposition.

For weeks, we've been under non-stop attack. Bob McDonnell is spending millions running dishonest, misleading ads against me in every region of the Commonwealth. The other side will do anything to stop our momentum and change the subject from Bob's intolerant social agenda.

Bob is taking more money from national Republican organizations than any campaign in Virginia history. And they're aiming their fire right at us.

They are not going to let up, and neither can we.

When I tell you that I'm going to work to create opportunity and hope in every corner of the Commonwealth, you don't just have to take my word for it. It's what I've done my entire career.

I wrote the legislation that created the Governor's Economic Opportunity Fund that created 78,000 jobs. I wrote the most progressive incentive-based land conservation program in the country, and I wrote Meghan's Law to protect our children from violent sexual predators.

Sadly, my opponent has never sponsored a bill to create a job through economic development or provide needed resources for education. Instead, he's spent his career trying to implement a divisive ideological agenda -- introducing 35 bills to restrict a woman's right to choose, and four bills to reclassify marriage. He's voted to restrict access to birth control and to deny women equal pay for equal work. Even to this day, he refuses to apologize for the offensive things he wrote about working women at the age of 34.

Bob McDonnell will take Virginia backwards. We can't let that happen.

Thanks so much for all of your help. I couldn't be prouder to have you by my side.
