Last week, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs appeared on Meet the Press and said that there’s “no doubt” that Republicans might win enough House seats in November for a majority. If a fundraising email from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is any indication, though, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., doesn’t exactly agree with Gibbs’ assessment.


“Friend —

Here is what will happen in November. Democrats will keep control of the House. Period.

While some Washington pundits are claiming that Republicans have the momentum, I remain more confident in our chances for victory as long as we have our secret weapon — you.

Next Sunday, July 25th, marks 100 days from the fall elections. I have set a goal of raising $1 Million in grassroots contributions to send a powerful message to the media and to the world that we will keep control of the House and we will continue America’s New Direction!

Please stand with me to send an overwhelming message of grassroots strength. If you contribute today, you will receive a special invitation to join me on our National Campaign Kickoff Conference Call.

Your grassroots support has provided our margin of victory in House races since 2006 and continuing through our triumphant special election victories this year.

Ninety percent of your grassroots dollars are sent right back out the door to help our Democratic campaigns (only 10 percent is used for administrative costs). Your dollars help our great Democrats fight back against Republican attacks, place strategic early media buys to get their messages out, and most of all, work to turn out every Democratic voter on Election Day.

Let us take this opportunity to come together for progress.

Thank you,
