I subscribe to David Nir's Election Morning Digest like a lot of kossacks and I was taking a look at the Ad section and there was one ad that really caught my eye.  The AFSCME recently released an attacking Republican Senate candidate, Congressman Denny Rehberg (R. MT-AL) for not only being a lobbyist but also footage of from 1996 proposing to end Social Security as we know it.  Here's the actual quote:

"When I talk about ending Social Security as we know it, I do meant that." - Montana Senatorial Debate, 10/28/96
Rehberg actually said this back in 1996 when he was running up against Senaotr Max Baucus (D. MT) back in 1996.  Here's the ad:

PPP's latest poll shows Senator Jon Tester (D) with a two point lead amongst likely voters but Karl Rove, American Crossroads and the GOP are hell-bent on taking this seat.  Let's chip in to hell Senator Tester win re-election so we can prevent extremists like Denny Rehberg from helping his GOP colleagues destroy the safety net.  Here's Tester's ActBlue page:

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.
