Received this e-mail from the Jim Graves (D) campaign who is seeking a rematch against Tea Party Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R. MN-06) next year:
Unbelievable news just broke: Rep. Bachmann is going up on TV – tomorrow!

There’s no telling what she could say. But you know Rep. Bachmann – we need to be ready for absolutely anything.

Remember, Jim came within just one point of defeating her last year. We can’t concede anything, we have to match her starting right now.

We’re putting together a rapid response fund, to make sure we have the resources to respond. To ramp up, we need to raise $50,000 by Friday at midnight.

Click here to rush $5 to our rapid response fund so we can be ready for whatever Rep. Bachmann has up her sleeve:

The National Journal said this: “buying TV ads in May of a non-election year is an extremely unusual move.”

It sure is. But we can’t let her get ahead – we need to match her dollar for dollar, from day one. That starts now. We need your help right away.

Click here to donate $5 or more to our rapid response fund – make sure Rep. Bachmann can’t pull ahead:

Thank you so much for your support, these are the moments we truly rely on you.

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.
