Now that President Obama and his allies are reportedly approaching $1 billion raised for the 2012 election, Mitt Romney's team is responding with a fundraising pitch to help close the money gap.

Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades sent out an e-mail asking for a donation of $25 or more to ensure a GOP victory in November.

"Liberals will not give up their power easily, so it's imperative that we all come together to stand up against them and elect Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and the entire Republican team, " Rhoades writes."President Obama and his allies will not hesitate to use Chicago-style politics to achieve their goals. We must not let them succeed -- we are not letting them succeed."

Obama and the Democratic National Committee raised $181 million in September. National Journal reports that haul brings Obama, the DNC and affiliated state party committees closer to the $1 billion mark --roughly $923 million, with about a month to Election Day.

Romney and the Republican National Committee have not yet released their fundraising totals for September. The Wall Street Journal reports that Romney, the RNC and GOP party committees took in $638 million through August.

And what? Obama has also asked for money. "Don't buy someone a gift, send me the money instead." What a looser.
