President Josiah Bartlett is throwing his support behind one of our favorite Congressmen:

Message from Team Grayson:

Monday is the end of the fundraising quarter. It is crucial. The candidates who have failed to raise enough money during this quarter will immediately have targets on their backs. The fallout? A barrage of attack ads from the likes of the Koch Brothers, the sewer-money-drenched special interests and the military-industrial complex.

Let's show all of them that our Champion for Peace, Congressman Alan Grayson, has an entire party behind him... a Peace Party. Please give to our campaign by Monday and let Congressman Grayson know that he can count on your support, not just for his courageous stand on Syria, but for all his years of promoting peace:

As the fundraising deadline approaches, Team Grayson wants to share another excellent video from our archives. It comes from award-winning actor and peace activist Martin Sheen. As he so eloquently puts it, "Peace is a family value." Please take a minute to read Sheen's passionate message, watch the video if you like, and click on any link to make a contribution before the end of the quarter to show your support for Congressman Alan Grayson:

I'm Martin Sheen.

Congressman Alan Grayson has demonstrated the personal courage and leadership to speak out against war. We need that kind of courage in the people whom we select:

So please, join me in supporting Congressman Alan Grayson's re-election at

Because non-violence and peace are family values.


Martin Sheen

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.
