Hey, y'all.

I didn't see an open thread discussing the outcomes of the two special elections in Louisiana today, so I started one.

In case you've been living in a bubble, today LA-06 and LA-01 votes, with a very great shot at winning in LA-06.

I've been calling people all day in LA-06, reminding them that it's election day, and they need to get out there and vote for Don Cazayoux!  In fact, I just came back from headquarters, where we went live on the news stations at 6:00pm.  There are still a ton of people left to call, but we've almost made it through them all, and everyone's spirits are high.

I've met a ton of very wonderful supporters, including a Republican!  They have great people from Arkansas who came to help, as well as people working with the Louisiana Democrats.  Spirit are high, as we try to not become one of those districts that other people make fun of (see Steve King's district).

After dinner, I'm back for what will become hopefully a victory celebration!  For those of you in the area, the party starts at 8pm, and every Don supporter is welcome.  It's at the Women's Club.

If y'all would like to know, we got an injunction against the NRC for their misleading/false calls to African American voters, stating that Don Cazayoux had no African-American politicans supporting him.  This was a callous effort to depress turnout, in case African-Americans were upset that the African-American Democratic Candidate lost the nomination to Don.

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.
