Most Kossacks have already heard about the progressive Democrat who's challenging ultra-conservative Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe. Andrew Rice has already generated lots of enthusiasm here, as well at at Firedoglake, Crooks & Liars and other Netroots blogs, as well as at ActBlue.

But as young, dynamic and compelling as Andrew is, it will be a tough campaign in a traditionally "red" state against a well-funded, entrenched opponent. He needs help from inside and outside of the state for the resources to compete and win.

Fortunately there are other young and dynamic Oklahoma progressives who are pitching in to help support Andrew. One you may have already heard of: Flaming Lips founder and singer, Wayne Coyne, who grew up and still lives in Oklahoma City.



Young Professionals Reception Benefiting Andrew Rice Senate Campaign
Featuring Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips!

$50 per attendee

Tuesday, March 11, 2008
Time: 5:30pm - 7:30pm
Host: Ogle and Welch, P.C.
Location: Ogle and Welch Law Office, 117 Park Ave., 3rd Floor, Oklahoma City, OK [Map]

Coyne and his wife Michelle will be the special guests at this benefit. If you are in Oklahoma, you will not want to miss it!

But if you are not in Oklahoma, you can still help. Please head over to the campaign web donation form, or Act Blue, and give what you can.

Either way, please help spread the word and let's give Andrew all the support and resources he needs to become Oklahoma's next Senator -- because he will be a great one, and.

Imagine all the heads that will explode when that happens!

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.
