Received this e-mail from Senator Elizabeth Warren (D. MA) in support of Congressman Ed Markey (D. MA) in the 2013 Massachusetts Special Election to fill Secretary of State John Kerry's (D. MA) U.S. Senate seat:

We’ve seen where the Republicans want to take our country, and it isn’t pretty. That’s why we need real leaders -- people with courage, with heart, and with a real commitment to the common good.

I’m proud to endorse my friend Ed Markey, the newly elected Democratic nominee for the United States Senate here in Massachusetts, and I hope you will join Ed’s campaign, too.

I’ll do everything I can to make sure Ed joins me in the Senate in June. But he will need strong grassroots support to take on the powerful special interests that are lining up to stop him.

Donate now to help Ed Markey become the next Senator from Massachusetts:

We need more people in the Senate who are willing to stand up for our values and stand up for families. I’ve worked with Ed and I’ve seen him in the ring, and I know he will fight for what we believe in.

    Ed will fight for families and small businesses -- to level the playing field and build a future for our kids and grandkids.

    Ed will fight for women -- for equal pay for equal work and access to health care screenings and birth control.

    Ed will fight for working families -- for the right to unionize and collective bargaining.

    Ed will fight for seniors -- for protecting Medicare and Social Security, the commitment we make to ourselves and to each other.

    Ed will fight for the environment -- in passing on a world to our children where you can drink the water and breathe the air.

    And Ed will fight for accountability on Wall Street -- to end “Too Big to Fail” and “Too Big to Jail” once and for all.

I know that the people of Massachusetts share the same values that Ed Markey and I do. But I also know that we can’t take anything for granted in the June special election. After all, it was just a few years ago when Scott Brown shocked the world and won the last Massachusetts special election.

I may be preaching to the choir, but we absolutely cannot lose another special election in Massachusetts -- or let our guard down even for a minute.

National Republicans and powerful corporate interests are going to do everything they can to take back a Senate seat in Massachusetts and keep another progressive like Ed Markey out of the Senate.

That’s why Ed Markey needs your help, and that’s why I’m counting on you. Donate now to send him to the United States Senate:

In the weeks ahead, we’re going to need you talking to your friends and family in Massachusetts about why this election is so important. You’re going to make the difference for Ed Markey.

Thank you for being a part of this,

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.
