Received this e-mail today from Senator Martin Heinrich (D. NM) in support of Congressman Bruce Braley's (D. IA-1) campaign to succeed retiring Senator Tom Harkin (D. IA):

Two years ago, when I decided to run for the open U.S. Senate seat in New Mexico, one of the first people to support me was my good friend and colleague, Congressman Bruce Braley of Iowa.

So when Senator Tom Harkin decided not to run for re-election, I wanted to return the favor once Bruce announced he was going to run for Tom's Senate seat in Iowa.

I was one of the first people to write Bruce a check for his campaign, and I hope you will join me in supporting him as well by making a donation of $5, $10, or even $25 today:

Like New Mexico, Iowa has always been a swing state and I know from my experience last year that Karl Rove and the U.S. Chamber are going to spend millions trying to take this seat.

We can't let that happen!

Please join me in supporting Bruce by making a donation of $5, $10, $25:

If we are going to maintain a Democratic majority in the Senate, Bruce is going to have to win this race.

But, he can't do it without your help.

Your donation of $5, $10, $25 or whatever you can afford will send a strong message to national Republicans that we are committed to winning this race:

I know Bruce can count on your support.



PS-By making a donation of $5, $10, $25 or more today, you can give Bruce the resources he needs to keep this seat Democratic and help us retain our majority in the Senate:

You can donate to Braley's campaign here:

Braley also picked up the endorsement from both Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller and Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald:

Miller and Fitzgerald are both Democrats. They announced their support for Braley in a press release Thursday. In the statement Miller says "Braley fights for Iowa, plain and simple." - The Republic, 3/28/13

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.
