I love seeing Democrats I like backing Democratic candidates I fully support.  Senator Sherrod Brown (D. OH) is one of my favorite Democrats and I'm happy to see him get behind my pick in the Hawaii U.S. Senate Democratic Primary, Senator Brian Schatz (D. HI):
People like you sign on to grassroots teams like ours for many reasons. Maybe you saw a petition you agreed with. Maybe you got one of our emails and decided to sign up.

But at the core, we all want to make a difference, however we can, to support the progressive values we all share. And when it comes to working for progress in the U.S. Senate, we need all the help we can get.

That’s why today I’m asking for your help -- not for me, but for a friend: Senator Brian Schatz from Hawaii. Brian is up for election. He has done great work in Washington -- working to preserve Medicare, protect Social Security, and make prescription medications more affordable for low-income families.

Brian needs our support. Will you join me in helping Brian fight back against special interests? Donate $5 or more right now!

Sam, the Tea Party in Washington has tried time and time again to turn Medicare into a voucher system. They’ve tried to take away the Social Security benefits our seniors have earned through years of hard work.

I’ve been there each time to fight back. You’ve been with me. And Brian has been there, too.

Brian is a target for the special interest groups he fights against in Washington. And if you and I want to make a difference, the best thing we can do is support Brian, who’s always fought for us.

I hope you can help me help Brian’s grassroots team with a contribution of $5 today.

Thank you for helping me support Brian.

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.
