Received a campaign e-mail from Michelle Nunn's (D. GA) "What Washington Can Learn From Georgia" tour with videos:
It is easy to see that there is a lot that Washington, D.C. can learn from folks here in Georgia.

After spending a couple weeks on the road with my family during my "What Washington Can Learn From Georgia" tour, I feel even more hopeful about the kind of change we can make by bringing some of that Georgia common sense to the United States Senate.

Let me tell you about just a few of the people that I met while I was on my tour.

In Athens, I hammered nails with Shemika, who has spent much of the last seven weeks working hand in hand with volunteers building her Habitat for Humanity house. She is a server at a local restaurant and she is moving up the training ladder and building opportunity for herself and her two sons.

And I met with the teachers and read to the students at Drew Charter School. Through the extraordinary public private partnership initiated by Tommy Cousins, this community and school have been transformed -- going from last to first in the Atlanta Public School system. This is an example of how creativity and entrepreneurial thinking can create dramatic results on issues that matter.

We need leaders that are focused on solutions and fresh, innovative ideas for the future. We need leaders that are more like the Georgians I met these last two weeks: thoughtful, practical, and committed to coming together across sectors -- individuals, communities, corporations -- and rolling up their sleeves to try and create new opportunities.

That's the kind of thinking that will get this country back on track, and, with your help, that's the kind of thinking I would like to take to the U.S. Senate.

Unfortunately, these days, politicians in Washington, D.C. seem more focused on who won or lost today's political battle than on problem solving.

Take a moment to watch and learn more about the incredible work these folks are doing, and then share it with your friends to spread the word about our campaign.

Watch our video today to learn more about how Georgians are making a difference in their communities, and then share it with your friends.

Thanks for your support,

Michelle Nunn

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.
