bake saleHere we are, and in just over 2 weeks, it will all be over and we can get back to our "normal" lives –- whatever that may be.  But for the next 14 days, we have A LOT OF WORK to do, and our candidates and causes need us now like they’ve never needed us before.

What are the last 2 weeks of campaigning like?  In a word, brutal.  For those on the ground, no one gets any sleep; junk food is the norm; nerves get frayed; and sometime battle plans created and executed beautifully for months get thrown out the window.  The one constant for all the down-ticket races, the one problem every single one of our down ticket candidates is facing, the one thing in short supply (besides time): money.

So Follow me below the fold for the links to the first of the Bake Sale Diaries...

This week at Progressive Blue, we are focusing our attention on the candidates we believe deserve not just your vote and your vocal support, but the money that will allow them to make it through these last 2 critical weeks successfully.

The links to each Bake Sale Diary published earlier this week will be published below every morning this week during the First PB Biennial Candidate & Cause Bake Sale!

Andrew Rice - OK-Sen  (by OklahomaVoter)

Larry Kissell - NC-08  (by OneCarolinaGirl)

Faye Armitage - FL-08  (by edgery)

Jeff Merkley - OR-Sen  (by sarahlane)

Each diary has links to at least one donation site as well as the candidate's own website link as well!

Let's give these guys a leg up if we can, with word of mouth, volunteering, and donations if you're not too recessed from the recession...

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.
