Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Since the primaries are over, I decided to put my money where my mouth is, and donate to ten or fifteen Democrats across the country. I'm calling it Chance's List. :) I can only contribute $10 to each, but I'm a college student, and I'm limited on funds!

This is where I need your help.

I prefer not to donate to Senate candidates because I want my contributions to have more of an impact, so I prefer to find ten progressive/liberal candidates you think is worthy of an extra $10. It can be a race for the House, or a state race, which I prefer because this is where I believe Democrats can make more of an impact.

I have browsed many candidates on the Politics1 candidate list, but I have no idea where I can go to find good progressive state candidates. Any suggestions?

I am asking Daily Kos because I found a candidate for state senate in South Dakota, Senator Angie Buhl through a diary by robbinsdale radical. Needless to say, I felt she deserved my support, so I sent $10.

Also, I may be a part of the Facebook generation, but I still prefer to send checks instead of using a credit card online.

I'm not expecting to get a lot of replies on this diary, so if you have more than one candidate, post it! Don't forget to list contact information!
