Friends, there's so much to share about our campaign and our Countdown to Change Tour:

Scott Kleeb, Countdown to Change

Today we started the morning at the Farmer's Daughter and the Lions Club Pancake Feed in Grand Island Nebraska and finished our day with stops in Doniphan and Gibbon and Hastings. In between we held three town halls and visited with Nebraskans outside a Cabela's in Kearney and at a gas station in Wood River.

I can tell you without any doubt tonight, Nebraskans are hungry for change.

Over 570 Nebraskans have signed my pick up truck.

In towns from Beaver City to Broken Bow, from South Sioux City to Hebron, we've seen it. I will never forget the faces and stories of the Nebraskans I've visited with on this tour of my state.

Last night I spent the night sharing 84¢ pitchers for the 84 years the plant was open with the workers of the now closed Vise-Grip plant in DeWitt, Nebraska. Yesterday was their final day on the job as their plant has been shipped overseas.

The people in that town are everything that's right with America, and why they are facing a plant closure represents everything we want to change.

I'm happy to share a liveblog with you here tonight (with the Huskers game on TV, of course.)

Thank you so much for supporting our campaign.

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.
