I got an email from Jim Webb telling me to donate to Bob Kerrey, so I sent $10 his way. I hope you will do the same. Deb Fischer is someone we do not want in the senate. Bob is running a passionate campaign and has gained over 10 points since the last poll (yes he is still plenty behind). But the words from Webb under the fold was encuraging to me.

I hope they are to you too:

Bob stood by my side throughout that campaign -- not only because we were friends, but also because Bob and I share the same values of relentless determination. And in the end we overcame a 33-point deficit in order to defeat an entrenched and well-financed opponent.
I urge you to send him a dollar or two before the deadline tonight:

Bob Kerrey at ActBlue

11:10 PM PT: I do understand that a lot of you don't think he is very much of an improvement over a republican. I respectfully disagree, and think he will be a more steadfast democrat than Ben Nelson. But this is also Nebraska. If Kerrey is elected, we will have a pro choice, pro gay marriage senator in Nebraska. He even campaigns on it. That's not nothing.

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.
