 This has been an exciting year. Last January, Democrats walked into Helena following our most successful election in a generation. And we walked out after one of the most effective legislative sessions - and special sessions - in memory.

We embraced renewable energy ... historically high levels of funding for education ... new programs to extend health insurance and prescription drug coverage to more Montanans ... and economic development programs that will move Montana forward.

Montanans have responded to our leadership. They gave the Legislature its highest marks in recent memory. Recent polls show most Montanans feel better about the direction of our state than they do about the direction of our country. And every new poll that comes out shows an increasing level of faith in Montana Democrats.

What we proved here in Montana is that it is possible, even in a so-called red state, to put forward an aggressive, principled agenda, get it passed, and win the trust of voters.

Now, we need to send that same message to Washington, D.C. Please consider making a contribution to Montanans for Tester today.

For too long, our party has been scared of its own shadow, unwilling to do anything for fear of facing political consequences. As a result, we've now got a President who thinks he can do anything without facing any consequences.

We need more Senators who will stand up to this administration.

In September, I demanded a new energy bill, one that gives fewer handouts to America's richest corporations and that does more to take care of consumers, the environment, and America's long-term energy needs.

So far, the Bush Administration has refused to act responsibly on energy.

Last month, I called for an exit strategy and a plan in Iraq that owns up to reality.

So far, the Bush Administration has refused to own up to reality in Iraq.

If we are going to succeed in making the Bush Administration change direction on the most important issues facing America - the economy, energy, health care, Iraq and education - we will need to make a strong case to them. And we'll only do that if we can send a strong message to the Democratic leadership.

Please, consider making a contribution today.

The Nation, one of America's most respected weekly magazines, recently editorialized that with my election in November, "the Democratic leadership will get the message loud and clear: It's time to get out of Iraq."

I hope to send another message as well: It's time for Congress to start working more for Americans and less for the richest multinational corporations and special-interests and their lobbyists.

But I can't send that message alone. I need your help. My campaign wants to launch our grassroots field operation soon. To do that, we need money. At the beginning of this month, we asked you to help us raise $10,000 in December. We've raised over 80% so far. Now I need your help to put my campaign over the top:

Whatever you can give -- $10, $20, $50, or $100 - will make a difference in this race.

Thank you all for all that you do,

Jon Tester

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

        Unfortunately, the DLC represents the majority of Wash DC dems, which are Republicans in all but name.  The 2-party game is dead, done, kaput, bereft of life.  it is an ex-parrot.

          It gladdens my heart to hear more and more people who are p.o.'ed at where the DLC has taken 'Jefferson's Party'.  You are so right about the 2-party systemn being dead, too...let the DLC have their own damned party, and let's take the Dem Party back.  

          If the Dem Party doesn't cut these bastards loose, then we've got to put our energies into building a whole new party, consisting of Labor, Progressives, Socialists, Greens and the grassroots of the old Democratic Party.  Leave whatever is left to Hillary Clinton and Joe-mentum Lieberman and the rest of those jerks who believe this country needs two Republican Parties.

    •  A little can be a lot (4.00)
      Contributions are first and foremost about the money and what it can buy, make no mistake. But they can also be about intangibles. Having worked campaigns, I can tell you that getting small contributions from folks who really can't afford to contribute anything at all can have a definite emotional impact. A bunch of ten-dollar checks can really say something about the kind of campaign that's being run, and the depth of belief there is in the candidate.

      Don't ever feel bad about the amount you give. Any donation is a vote of confidence.

  •  You and Paul Hackett (4.00)

  •  Save Montana! (4.00)
    I don't live there anymore, but it's where I grew up, so . . . my SS just hit the bank, and I'm sending a few $$.

    The DLC is a pox upon our house.  If we don't get more people willing to plant their feet, take a stand and speak the truth in simple terms, we are doomed.

    I used to think the DLC types just didn't get it; that they reacted from fear.  Now, we have major polls over the last several months showing that independent voters have fled from the Administration's actions and policies.  The DLC continuing Republican-lite stance has to be based on something more than the political willies.  Yes, the word is greed--the corporate trough.  And it's the corporate elite that are fearful.  Gee--when the consumers can't consume, what will happen to those poor CEOs?

  •  In the eyes of the beholder (none)
    Tricky Dick said in an earlier comment "Granted, Eastern Montana is a desolate wasteland. But no one lives there."  Admittedly it is largely prairie but desolate is much too draconian characterization.  And though the numbers might be small, there are people living there.  Billings (an intersting cosmipolitan city smack in the center of eastern MT close to Wyoming border)is the largest city in the state in fact.  And John Tester is from eastern MT- Big Sandy.  As I hail from Havre (just down the road to the northeast) I just had to come to the homeland's defense.  

    Also while MT is considered by many as a Red State, that is now seeing the light, historically MT was in fact Democratic.  Up until the Burns era MT had only one GOP senator in history.  Remember Majority Leader Mike Mansfield?  Senator Lee Metcalf is well remembered in the environmental movement. Burton Wheeler took on FDR over the SCOTUS.  Far Eastern MT had an active Communist Party in the 30's.   There are liberal and progressive roots to be tapped even though I concede that the state did take a Red State turn for a decade.  MT Democrats have had to think smarter, campaign harder and choose candidates more carefully than in the days when Butte mine unions and labor forces in Greast Falls and other communities would provide margins, but it is working and MT can be a model and an encouragment for other Democrats in states that have tilted to the GOP.  


  •  Correction - "The Nation" (none)
    The Nation is not "one of America's most respected weekly magazines". They are shills for the Green Party and have recently been demonizing leading Democrats, thus showing me that they are back to their Nader-supporting ways.

    My long-term subscription with them is quickly approaching an early termination. I suggest to you sir, that while your positive reference to The Nation may do you well here at dailykos, you may not want to use that in places that are less tolerant of the undermining of the Democratic Party by Green Party / Naderite apologists.

    Just my .02. I'm sure many others here will disagree, it is up to you whether you wish to heed my observation or not.

    •  Correction: "The Nation" (none)
      in NOT a shill for the Green Party.  I began subscribing to The Nation after Bush was appointed in 2000 with no pre-conceived notions.   And it became a great teacher and companion for me through this dark period of our history.  The opinions and backgrounds of the Nation writers are diverse and cannot be put in a box except the "wickedly smart" box.  John Nichols' emphasis on "Taking it to the States" and "Rural Strategy" along with his spot on reporting of Washington insider shenanigans is the opposite of the chattering class.  When I was privileged to meet him at the progressives "Take Back America" conference and "Media Reform Conference', he was warm and very interested in what I had to say about Montana politics. Really.  No pandering.  We yapped away for over 20 minutes.  My hero.  
      Katrina Vanden Heuvel is awesome.  Eric Alterman is a pit bull. Greider is a genius.  I owe my opposition to the war and knowing there were NO WMD's to them.  And they are visionary big picture people.   This month's issue has a cover story on the ethics of neuro science.  What has that got to do with the Green Party?  They are supporters of Howard Dean and John Edwards;  hardly Greenies.  
      I subscribe now to lots of Progressive mags, but if I was allowed to keep only one, it would be The Nation.

      I can't believe there are people out there still spouting this kind of nonsense.  Some of us actually believe in supporting candidates (and parties) who represent our own views....that's why we call it democracy.  Those who are less principled--and ultimately less sophisticated--are still free to follow blindly behind a party that is no longer recognizable as what the Democratic Party USED to stand for.

      Instead of whining about Nader or other authentic progressives 'stealing' votes from your guy or 'handing' the election to the Republicans, isn't it about time that you grew up and recognized that 'politics ain't beanbag'?  Your candidate will need to WIN votes by earning them...s/he should not expect to INHERIT them by default.

    I'll be voting for you in the primary.  Got your sticker on my car, (unfortunately I seem to be the only one in town).  We really need folks that care about Montana representing us.

    One thing I haven't seen addressed yet in the current legislature is the fact that college tuition is terribly high in Montana when compared to Montana's neighbors and when compared to what our state's average income is.  Smart kids are leaving the state for scholarship money (which isn't available at MSU or UofM) and not looking back when they graduate.

    Don't get me started on what Northwest is doing to the heating bill.  People can't afford to live here on jobs paying $10 (or less) per hour.
