The Obama campaign just issued an “urgent” fundraising pitch to supporters, lamenting that Mitt Romney raised more in June — more than $100 million — than they raised in April and May combined.

“We’re still tallying our own numbers, but this means their gap is getting wider, and if it continues at this pace, it could cost us the election,” reads the appeal from campaign manager Jim Messina.

“If everyone who’s been waiting to give pitches in $3 or more today, we can start reversing this trend in just a few hours,” the email continues.

“One hundred million is alarming enough, but it doesn’t even include the millions pouring into pro-Romney super PACs — or the fact that, unlike four years ago, it’s perfectly legal for the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson, Karl Rove, and anonymous billionaires to funnel unlimited money into attacking President Obama in critical battleground states,” Messina writes. “…If we don’t take this seriously now, we risk finding ourselves at a point where there is too much ground to make up.”
