Fantastic news, people. We've blasted through our original goal - 100 contributions to each House candidate - for seven of the 11 names on the list. But that just means we need to follow through for the remaining four folks (Kissell, Courage, Seals and Fawcett), as well as the three Senate candidates (Lamont, Tester and Webb), who each need to hit 250 donors. Here's James' summary, which he compiled every night at midnight, Eastern time:

Candidate District 8/20 Donors 8/22 Donors New Donors in Past 24hrs. New Donors Since 8/20
Ned Lamont CT-Sen 3064 3,187 62 123
Jon Tester MT-Sen 2056 2,205 73 149
Jim Webb VA-Sen 1270 1,474 86 204
Eric Massa NY-29 905 1,007 50 102
Joe Sestak PA-07 876 989 53 113
Patrick Murphy PA-08 687 794 48 107
Jerry McNerney CA-11 681 792 53 111
Darcy Burner WA-08 679 796 59 117
Linda Stender NJ-07 508 609 45 101
Paul Hodes NH-02 465 582 64 117
Larry Kissell NC-08 427 523 46 96
John Courage TX-21 415 511 42 96
Dan Seals IL-10 375 464 43 89
Jay Fawcett CO-05 375 470 45 95
Total 12,783 13,634 769 1,620

Here's another amazing stat: Since the start of this push, we've amassed over 1,600 separate donations and raked in over $41,000 - in just two days. Not too shabby for the middle of August.

Also, please remember that today is the last day of the fundraising period for Eric Massa, Paul Hodes and Darcy Burner. It's also the last day for all federal candidates in AZ, DE, MD, MN, NH, NY, RI, VT & WI, so if you want to help make their FEC reports looks good, today is the day to give.

P.S. As always, please use this thread to tell us whom you've given to, so that we can give you some well-deserved mojo in return. And tell us more about your favorite candidates.

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.
