Received this e-mail today from EMILY's List in support of Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes' (D. KY) candidacy for U.S. Senate:
Believe it. We can beat Mitch McConnell in 2014.

EMILY's List is excited to endorse Alison Lundergan Grimes and use our full weight to help send Mitch McConnell -- and his nearly 30-year conservative agenda -- packing.

A new poll shows Alison Lundergan Grimes locked in a tie with the Senate Republican Leader. And more than half of Kentucky voters disapprove of Mitch McConnell's job performance.

Make a contribution to Alison Lundergan Grimes, and 100% of your gift will go to her campaign to beat Mitch McConnell:

McConnell's led the Republican Party against equal pay for equal work. Against health care access to key preventative services, including cancer screenings and birth control. Even against the Violence Against Women Act.

It's no wonder why Kentucky thinks he's out of touch with their values.

Alison Lundergan Grimes is an attorney, a voting rights advocate, and the youngest female secretary of state in the country. She's spent her time in office improving Kentucky's voting laws to increase participation, empowering military voters, and improving the Bluegrass State's business climate.

She's a smart, exciting leader -- and the polls show that Kentuckians believe she's ready to lead the efforts to Ditch Mitch.

We're going to need everyone's help to beat Mitch McConnell and his bottomless well of special interest money. Make a contribution to Alison's campaign right now:

We can win this one. Let's make it happen for Alison.

Take care,

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.
