Received this e-mail today from Secretary of State Natalie Tennant's (D. WV) u.S. Senate campaign in regards to the man she is hoping to succeed in the U.S. Senate:
Senator Jay Rockefeller ended his retirement announcement speech with a message for us: “To all West Virginians – who took me in, transformed me, and supported me. Whose home is and always will be mine. And who I will always be proud to fight for: Thank you.”

Now it’s our turn to thank him. At next week’s Jefferson-Jackson Dinner, I’m excited to have the opportunity to formally thank him for his 50 years of public service to our state and our country.

As Senator Rockefeller enters his last year as our senator, will you join me in thanking him for his service to our great state of West Virginia?

Please sign my thank you card to show Senator Rockefeller our appreciation for everything he has done for West Virginia and our country:

On the same day that I announced my candidacy for Senator Rockefeller’s seat, Senator Rockefeller endorsed me. I couldn’t be more thankful for his support.

But I’m even more thankful for what he has done for West Virginia. Senator Rockefeller has been a champion for working families, children, seniors and our veterans. He brought Toyota, NGK and other manufacturers to our state, authored legislation creating the Children’s Health Insurance Program, championed the fight the save health benefits for retired miners, co-authored legislation that has provided $89 million to connect West Virginia schools to the internet, helped create the Clarksburg State Veterans Nursing Home and ten veterans clinics around the state, and so much more.

I’m truly inspired by his dedication to West Virginia and all he has done for us. If elected as your next senator, I pledge to carry on his legacy. I will continue to fight for West Virginia and bring our West Virginian values to Washington just as Senator Rockefeller has done.

I can’t thank Senator Rockefeller enough for his service, but together, I know we can show him how much we appreciate his work.

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.
