SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- President Barack Obama is telling supporters that with one month to go, it is time for them to get "almost obsessive."

Speaking to donors at a $20,000-per-ticket dinner in San Francisco, the president said, quote, "I very much intend to win this election."

But he says it will require supporters to mobilize every resource they can think of to help him. He encourages those who gave him cash to do more by sending emails, making phone calls, and reaching out to cousins or uncles or friends in the battleground states that will decide the election.

He said,  "You've got to make sure that we bring this home."

The president spoke Monday night at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium before a separate fundraising concert capping a lucrative campaign trip to California.
