That's Orange to Blue candidate (and Kossack, Eric Griego, who's running for Congress in New Mexico's first congressional district). In case you missed his diary, here's what he says about the ad:
In Congress, I will fight back for working families to hold Wall Street accountable. We need to break up the Wall Street-Washington romance.

Today, I’m proud to become the first congressional candidate in the nation to air a TV ad that stands for a simple, principled idea: Wall Street bankers who broke the law belong in jail.

It's a simple but revolutionary enough idea that it's making national news. Lots of DFH bloggers have called for the rule of law to actually be applied to the bankers who broke the law and brought the global economy crashing down, but not too many candidates will stick their necks out so far. He's not going to be making too many friends in the finance industry with that message. Considering he's still in a competitive primary race, it was a gutsy move on Griego's part.

It's also going to make him a real target for defeat. As hard as Wall Street is fighting to defeat Elizabeth Warren, they'll fight to keep Griego out of Congress.

Help get Eric Griego in Congress. Pitch in $3 on Orange to Blue.

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.
