A great organization that I greatly appreciate, VoteVets, is getting involved in the Colorado recalls:

In this photo taken May 24, 2013, Democratic State Senate President John Morse works at the Democratic Party offices in Colorado Springs, Colo., where Morse and his staff are planning their weekend strategy to encourage voters not to sign petitions for his recall. Gun-rights activists with support of the National Rifle Association are seeking Morse's ouster because of his support for new gun laws that restrict ammunition magazines and expand background checks to private gun sales.

As an Iraq War veteran and Colorado resident, I was happy to see over 90% of VoteVets supporters choose to fight back against the NRA-backed recalls and stand up for State Senator John Morse in Colorado.

So that's what we're going to do.

Election Day is in three weeks, and we're on the air in a big way in Colorado defending John Morse, who has been a champion for veterans throughout his time in office.

Watch the ad and help keep us on the air.

These recall elections are a chance to show legislators across the country that we'll stand with those who take action to reduce gun violence.

If we beat the NRA here, we'll send a message that begins to dismantle the culture of fear the NRA has fostered in Congress and state capitals around the country. That's why we're asking people to vote NO on this recall.

Thank you for standing with us,

Garett Reppenhagen

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.
