 title=We need Jennifer Brunner to win the Ohio Senate Primary!

In 2008, campuses around Ohio teamed with excitement and energy.  Obama had inspired and engaged college students in a way no candidate had ever done before.  

And don't believe that line that it was because he was just cool.  He only got that way because of sustained effort and focus on new voters, particularly college students. Come election day, not only were our votes crucial, but our labor was the lifeblood of Obamas grassroots machine.

Progressives are understandably concerned that young people will not turn out this year.  As a College Democrats leader, so am I.  Its not because students are less progressive then they were in ‘08.  Its not because they are less tuned into what is going on.

 title=Its because, of our two senate candidates, one of them targets young people, inspires them and has a strong grassroots support base, and the other does not.  

Jennifer Brunner has worked hard to reach college students for months now.  Last fall she visited our university.  She connected with the students in a way few politicians can.   By the end of her visit everyone in the room was impressed, and dozens signed up for the Students for Brunner group.  

It is that kind of sustained effort, and that kind of connection that will be needed if young people are going to be a force in this years election as they were in ‘08.  That is why we NEED Jennifer Brunner to win the primary.

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.
