I’m Carrie Lucking, the Communications Director for Tarryl Clark’s Campaign for Congress in Minnesota.

This picture shows momentum - who has it, and who doesn't.

On the one side, you'll see the 300 people that showed up to cheer Tarryl Clark on as she arrived at yesterday's only debate in the 6th District. On the other, the 30 that showed up to greet Michele Bachmann as she rushed in - late to her only public debate.

Yesterday's raucous rally with hundreds of cheering supporters stood in stark contrast to Bachmann's entrance. One reporter wrote, "Clark entered the civic center with a cheering crowd of supporters trailing down the corridor behind her. Bachmann, hunched under a red umbrella against the nearly horizontal rain, arrived just minutes before the start of the forum with the minimum of fanfare."

Why was Bachmann so late?

Perhaps because she started and ended the day with Glenn Beck, who was campaigning for his favorite guest. Imagine if Bachmann spent as much time meeting with her constituents as she did with FOX News hosts.

It's time for Bachmann to go.

We can beat Michele Bachmann this year, but in order to do it we need to talk to every undecided voter - and every Democrat thinking of staying home - in the next six days.

We've got the momentum, but we still need help spreading the word on Facebook, Twitter and on your blogs.

For the next six days, we'll continue to give Michele Bachmann the fight of her life. We're counting on you to help us keep it up.

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.
