Down the stretch we come!  Fingers dial, mouths move, and fists pump all around as we surge into the final 24 hours.  Excitement fills the air here at the Old Irving campaign office.

The last few days brought a slew of high-profile endorsements: John Nichols of The Nation, Joe Conason of Salon, and Harold Meyerson of the Washington Post.

More importantly, the voters of the Fifth District continue to make up their minds.  We’ve made tens of thousands of calls to previously undecided voters who now plan to vote Geoghegan along with early Tom supporters fired up to turn out.  They all say "no" to politics as usual and "yes" to a new kind of bold, plain-spoken Democrat like Tom Geoghegan.

Save Social Security?  No!  Increase Social Security? Yes!

Minor health care reform?  No!  Single-payer?  Yes!

Let credit card companies charge Mafioso interest rates?  No!  Reinstate usury laws?  Yes!

The team here won't stop working until the buzzer sounds at 7pm CST tomorrow.  If you want Democrats to talk like Tom does, this is your chance to make a difference.  A $25 donation puts another 50,000 ads online tomorrow.  An hour on our virtual bank could turn out 75 more votes.  This is a race where 12,000 votes might win.

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.
