In McCain's backyard: A message from the Obama campaign

I had to write you to share some news you may not have heard.

The Arizona Republic is now reporting that a series of new polls show us "neck and neck" with John McCain in Arizona. According to the Republic, Senator McCain is "struggling in his own backyard."

Arizona is his home state. He should have a comfortable lead with voters who've known him for nearly three decades. That says all you need to know about the strength of Barack's message and the grassroots movement we've built.

With Election Day just 5 days away, this surge of support for Barack couldn't come at a better time. But we have to act immediately to take advantage.

Sign up right now to join our grassroots effort. Help turn out voters any time between now and Election Day, November 4th.

In response to the news, John McCain is now blanketing Arizona -- his own home state -- with negative and misleading "robocalls" to voters.

It's a desperate move, but we need to respond and keep our momentum going. If enough of you take the time to get involved and do your part, we could pull a real upset.

The way to do that is to talk to Arizonans face to face, and let them know the importance of their vote in this election. But we've only got 5 days left to do it.

Supporters like you have put us within striking distance. Now it's time to pull off what no one expected.

Sign up and join in the final push to make history in this election:

We've got a real chance now, but we can't do this without you.
