Received this e-mail today from Senator Kristen Gillibrand (D. NY):
5/22/2012.Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/STEPHEN B. THORNTON.Republican Tom Cotton waits to do a televison interview during a watch party in Hot Springs Tuesday evening for Cotton's bid to be the Republican nominee for the race for Arkansas' 4th district Congresion seat.
I have some big news: Last night, Republican Rep. Tom Cotton launched his campaign to challenge Arkansas Democratic Senator Mark Pryor.

Cotton is recklessly anti-woman. He opposed equal pay for equal work, voted against every version of the Violence Against Women Act – even the Republican version – and said women shouldn't be allowed to serve in infantry because it's against our "nature."

Meanwhile, Mark Pryor was one of the first to support me in addressing the military sexual assault crisis and voted for the Violence Against Women Act.

Mark leads the first poll 43-35, but with tens of millions in outside money behind Cotton, Mark needs our help. He's already faced more than $1 million in attacks.

Mark's campaign has set a goal of raising $100,000 by midnight Friday – will you join me right now in helping him get there?

Click here right away to donate $5 or more directly to Mark. We need his voice in the Senate:

If we lose Mark, we could lose the Senate – and we cannot have that.

A Republican Senate majority would be determined to take away women's access to health care, and would once again make the sheer act of being born a woman a pre-existing condition.

These are battles from the past. They are nothing but distractions from the progress we are fighting for every day. When it comes to jobs, the economy and making education affordable, we need Mark Pryor in the Senate and we need to protect our majority.

I hope you'll join me in donating right away. If Cotton and the outside groups have the airwaves to themselves, Mark could lose. If Mark loses, we all lose.

Click here now to donate $5 or more directly to Mark to help him defend his record and protect our Senate majority:

Thank you for all you do for our values,

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.
