President Obama's campaign took a mopey message to supporters as they asked for more contributions to the reelection campaign.
"We got beat," the subject of a message from campaign manager Jim Messina proclaimed. "For the first time in this campaign, we got beat in fundraising. The Romney campaign and the Republican Party raised more than $76 million last month, compared to our $60 million," Messina said.
He added that "We knew this moment would come when Romney secured the nomination."
Messina attributed the fundraising gap to Romney's wealthy donors before asking supporters to "fight like h*ll and help us win this thing."
