I was simply blown away by your outpouring of support last night when I finally got in. I had heard yesterday afternoon when I got out of church, where many of us were praying for a miracle, that one was literally taking place in the community of DailyKos. But I had no idea what you guys are truly capable of until now. We're going to make sure the nation knows come Novemember when we're on our way to Washington how this came to be.

People. Powered. Politics.

I love the fact that you folks truly get it.

I'm told that what we're doing here in North Carolina's 8th is nothing short of amazing. And your continued support let's me continue to tell it like it is, run like the frontrunner, and get out there and win the vote of every single person I connect with. You help keep the lights on, keep me on TV and radio, and I promise I'll keep working harder for the people than ever.

"Someone Working...For a Change" is more than a slogan. It's what we need in Washington. Today though, they need me in Charlotte for some TV interviews, and thanks to your generous support, I'll be making some more commercials today too.

Remember, what I told the Charlotte Observer is the truth.

"What comes in goes on TV and radio the next day."

So the fact is, I've got thousands of you media buyers out there that want to be heard. And you are being heard, by millions of voters. I'll keep you up to date - last count this morning was 147 new and many recurring contributors via Netroots and PayPal adding almost $10,000 to the latest media buy, many in those inspiringly significant multiples of $88.94.

Keep it coming, and we will take our country back from the special interests that have been buying and selling the People's House.

Thank you all and God Bless.

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.
