Ladies and gentleman...Norm Coleman's insistence on being a sore loser has now raised over $140,000 to help progressives defeat Republicans in 2010.

Thanks so much to the many Kossacks who've supported the PCCC and Democracy for America's "Dollar a Day to Make Norm Go Away" campaign.

If this were a boxing match, it appears Norm Coleman is on the ropes:

Roll Call reports that we may now be entering a truly crucial phase in the seemingly never-ending saga of the 2008 Minnesota Senate election -- indeed, it might actually be ending fairly soon, if Norm Coleman doesn't have the heart to keep going.

The MN Supreme Court will rule within a week or two.

This is the moment of truth.
Either we lay the pressure on thick now and get Coleman to concede when the ruling comes, or he appeals again -- keeping Al Franken out of the Senate for potentially months more.

It's time for a knock out punch.

Can you help us reach $150,000 by Monday?

On Monday, we'll be taking our message directly to Coleman's DC funders!

Back in Round 6 of the fight, when we were only at $86,000, local Minnesotans made sure Norm Coleman directly got the message that he was hurting Republicans every day he stayed in the race.

To the right is the video of Coleman receiving a big check written out from him to progressives.

Our campaign's generated a ton of national news (NY Times, Politico, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, etc.) which Coleman's DC funders would have to try hard to miss.

But on Monday, we'll making sure they hear directly just how much they'll be shooting themselves in the foot if they encourage Coleman to keep going.

$150,000 is a nice round number that they'll have to take notice of...can you help us make it there? Help throw the knock-out punch...

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.
