Received this e-mail from which is backing Congressman Ed Markey (D. MA-5) who is running for Secretary of State John Kerry's (D. MA) Senate seat:
Elizabeth Warren is already proving to be the progressive Senate leader so many MoveOn members were counting on when we got behind her campaign in 2011. She hasn't wasted any time taking on the big banks and standing up against any cuts to Social Security benefits.

MoveOn members helped propel Elizabeth to the Senate by raising more than $1 million for her campaign—and now we've got a chance to double down on her leadership and send another progressive leader to the Senate from Massachusetts: Ed Markey. He's running in the Democratic primary for the special election to fill Secretary of State John Kerry's seat in just three weeks.

As a member of Congress, Ed Markey has been a national leader on progressive issues. He's been a fierce defender of Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and Obamacare, and a strong champion of a woman's right to make her own decisions about her reproductive health—and now MoveOn members have endorsed his campaign for the U.S. Senate.

Can you pitch in $25 to Ed's campaign right now—before tonight's critical FEC deadline—and send Elizabeth Warren an ally in the U.S. Senate?

Yes, I can contribute $25 to Ed Markey's campaign.

MoveOn members from across Massachusetts have been excited to share why they support Ed in the special election primary coming up in just three weeks:

    Ian from Somerville, MA:

        The choice here is clear: Rep. Markey is the only candidate in this race who has been a consistent progressive advocate for health care, the environment, reproductive rights, LGBT equality, and a responsible U.S. foreign policy.

    Lorna from Amherst, MA:

        We want a senator who will work with Elizabeth Warren and will support progressive causes and women's rights (...)

    Cathy from Natick, MA:    

        Rep. Markey has been my congressman for the 19 years I have lived in his district. He is THE leader on climate change in Washington.

MoveOn members in Massachusetts endorsed Markey with more than 94% of votes cast, and with primary day three weeks away, he'll need to rapidly raise enough money to run a winning statewide campaign.

Can you contribute $25 to Ed's campaign?

Thanks for all you do.

–Ilya, Stephen, Elena, Justin, and the rest of the team

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.
