For those who aren’t familiar with the name "Elliot Anderson", you may be more familiar with fellow Daily Kos community member (and great guy) DemMarineVet - someone who has put his time, money and reputation where his mouth is by running for Nevada State Assembly.

Of course, he already has more than proven himself as a Marine combat veteran, serving in Afghanistan and Nevada State Captain for VoteVets.org, and now Elliot is looking to take his progressive views to the Nevada Assembly.  

Elliot’s campaign site is here if you want to take a look at his stances and bio, or more importantly, to help one of our own out.

Personally, I first met Elliot back at Netroots Nation in Chicago and we spent a lot of time talking about where the netroots has come, where it can go and what we can all do to help further the progressive cause.  We have stayed in touch since then, and when he told me that he was running for Assembly, I had 2 questions for him: (1) What can I do to help you, and (2) where can I send you a donation?

And in the few short months since his announcement, he has racked up endorsements from Democracy For America as well as from VoteVets, a group that knows firsthand just how good of a candidate Elliot is.  But it isn’t just about endorsements, as Elliot has been out every day walking the district (3 hours each day in the hot Nevada sun!) getting to talk to the folks in his district and talk about his campaign.

There is a campaign goal - a very modest goal of $10,000 in Netroots donations – and part of the goal is to raise exposure and visibility (lawn signs, etc.).  Quite frankly, isn’t this what we are all about here in the netroots – helping each other help the progressive cause?.  So what do you say – check out Elliot’s campaign site, volunteer to help and (of course), any donations are greatly appreciated (PLEASE ADD $0.01 so the campaign knows it is a "netroots donation"!!!).

And they will go to help a great progressive; a great American and great guy help change this country for the better.

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.
