First of all, I want to thank the entire Daily Kos community for helping me in this contest.

From Markos all the way down, you all have been great.

But its not over yet.

Voting ends at Midnight Pacific Time tonight.

Please take a second and VOTE NOW for me, David Mauro.

Free Republic and Red State have both been campaigning for another candidate. They say I have been "begging people to run up the vote for them, by hook or by crook."

"If you would like to enrage the DailyKos, you can do it here" is the title of their posts.

My name is David Mauro and I am a staff writer for Burnt Orange Report, a progressive blog from Texas you might be familiar with from our work on last spring's presidential County Conventions among other things.

We have long had a link on the front page of Daily Kos and are doing our part to turn Texas blue.

Thanks for everyone's help. Please don't give let up in these crucial final hours. Every vote counts.

VOTE NOW

Recs are greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
David Mauro

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.
