Crowd cheers Barack Obama in Cleveland, OH, on October 25, 2012
Closing strong!
Goal Thermometer
Pick your cliche: This is it. Crunch time. It's now or never. Last chance.

Bottom line, the 2012 campaign is days from being over, and so is your chance to help deliver big progressive victories next Tuesday.

I'm not talking about those of you who are already doing your part donating or GOTVing. I'm talking to the rest of you. It's time to dig deep and chip in. It can be just a candidate or two. Don't wake up next Wednesday feeling like you could've done just a little bit more.

Upgrade the Senate bug
We'll either have the White House, an upgraded Senate, and a larger Democratic caucus in the House, or we won't. And we'd all rather have the former rather than the latter. So do a little bit more.

We've compiled our own list of winnable races featuring solid progressive candidates. Our Speaker Pelosi Project seeks to get us back in the majority. We'll have an infinitely better Senate if we elect the candidates on our Upgrade the Senate page. We can help make marriage equality a reality for our heroes fighting for it in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington, via our Daily Kos for Marriage Equality page. And of course, there's the top of the ticket with President Barack Obama.

Speaker Pelosi project bug
Pick one or more of these campaigns, or look at our full Orange to Blue list here. Or if your favorite campaign isn't on our lists, give to that campaign directly. Just give.

You guys have been incredibly generous to date. A sampling of how we've helped various candidates:

Total raised: $3.012 million
Elizabeth Warren: $384,450
Tammy Baldwin: $148,939
Barack Obama: $88,091
Fight for Marriage bug

Sherrod Brown: $86,669
Chris Murphy: $88,192
Mazie Hirono: $71,163
Ami Bera: $32,356
Joe Garcia: $28,413

That's not Super PAC billionaire money. That's people like you, collectively given $3, or $5 or $20. Together, we can provide serious help to candidates who have put themselves on the line for what we all believe.

We're all tired of this campaign cycle. We're all sick of Romney bullshit and polls and fundraising emails and everything that comes with an important, hard-fought campaign.

But we've got five four days left. Let's make them count.

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.
