It went something like this:

Bronwyn --

We’ve gotten a lot of questions about the upcoming Wisconsin election.

Here’s the answer: our Wisconsin team is in.

If Republicans are going to launch an assault on worker’s rights and the middle class, we’re going to stand up and fight them every step of the way from Wisconsin to Washington, D.C. We already have field organizers on the ground in key districts -- but we have to get going quickly.

Will you help us reach 5,000 donations today to show Democrats are united and have what it takes to win?

Please contribute $3 or more right now to make sure we get out every Democratic vote we can.

The polls are neck-and-neck so it’s going to come down to which side can turn out more voters on Election Day.

Let’s stand together on this:

Thank you,


Here is the response I sent you:

Dear DCCC,

Have you sent money to WI?  How much?  What does "our Wisconsin team is in" mean?
They don't need a WI-based fundraiser from your Chair, or more volunteers.  They need dollars.

We at Daily Kos have already raised over $175,000 dollars for them since the news of your initial non-involvement broke.
How much have you given?

Should we give money to the DCCC or continue fundraising on ActBlue?

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.
