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:

You asking me if I can figure out who this Heidi Hall is?  I don't know.  I keep hearing all these fundraisers but I got elected November 2012 with 57% of the votes and I'm a rice farmer and CA-01 voters really like that in me.  I think I'll do fine November 4th, I really do.
Although California's 1st Congressional District may not necessarily be on the DCCC's target and that Rep. Doug LaMalfa is representing a district rated with an PVI of R+10, it seems though Democratic Candidate Heidi Hall continues to generate quite a bit of fundraising for her campaign.

Judging from her ActBlue totals, Hall has raised $45,011 for the 2014 campaign season.  Not bad considering CA-01 is a red district.


Looks like another upcoming fundraiser is happening for Heidi Hall in Nevada City, CA for anyone who is interested in attending:
