I was at Scholz's for the party the Travis County Democratic Party threw so we could watch Wendy Davis make her announcement for governor. The room was packed - just about literally. And there was so much excitement -- I was drafted to help at the table selling t-shirts & we sold tons. Come & see the pictures I took.

Crowd shot - you can sort of see the local elected officials, in the back left, talking before Wendy spoke:

I wouldn't normally include this one, as it is an awful one of me, with my eyes closed & all, but it is me with the best State Representative in Texas, Elliott Naishtat, so look at my friend Elliott, not me:

There was so much energy, excitement & joy in the room. I have real hope we can take back the Governor's mansion. Help us out - here's the donation page for Battleground Texas, the group working to turn Texas blue. And here is Wendy Davis' Act Blue page

a better crowd shot:

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.
