Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-MN/NH) is in trouble. Polls show him trailing DFLer Rick Nolan. His support for ending the Ryan Budget which would end Medicare and Social Security plus moving to New Hampshire haven't helped his cause. He's tried to portray himself as a moderate, but has failed.

Now word comes that Rep. Michele Bachmann will be riding to his rescue. Cravaack gets access to Bachmann's vaunted email list. Campaign gold.

Michele Bachmann is wielding her mighty email list of donors on behalf of fellow Minnesota Republican Chip Cravaack, who's locked in a highly competitive race with former DFL U.S. Rep. RicK Nolan in the 8th Congressional District.

In a message sent to supporters Tuesday, Bachmann said she rarely sends fundraising emails on behalf of other candidates but she made an exception for Cravaack because "the stakes are so high" that Democrats could retake the U.S. House. Actually, many political forecasters, such as Larry Sabato at the University of Virginia, believe Democrats will gain fewer than 10 of the 25 total seats they'd need to take a majority in the House.

Bachmann wouldn't help a moderate. She would only help a pure Tea Party Republican.

Time to pony up some money for Rick Nolan.

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.
