Received this e-mail from Senator Jon Tester (D. MT) in support of Senator Mary Landrieu's (D. LA) re-election campaign:
Here on Team Tester, we know a thing or two about what it takes to win a close race. And Montanans definitely know a barn burner when we see one.

My friend Mary Landrieu in Louisiana is facing a tough fight and our grassroots network could really help out. There’s also a big December deadline coming up this month.

Her campaign is trying to get more donors before the end of the year — and we only have a few weeks to make it happen. Can you give $5 or more to help them out?

Like Montana, Louisiana needs a senator who will make the right decision no matter what Washington thinks. And Louisiana needs Mary’s no-nonsense leadership -- especially now.

This is her first campaign since the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, which will definitely open the floodgates to secret money and out-of-state special interests — and Mary's campaign has to be prepared for opponents that will take full advantage.

We only have this month left to reach Mary’s donor goal. Can you pitch in $5 right now to help her out and pledge your grassroots support?

She will always have our back on the issues that matter most. Thank you for supporting her.

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.

    Otherwise, Worst Democrat in the Senate would be her prize. Tester ran as a progressive and got money here.  He isn't.  They can go get money from oil companies and Big Ag as far as I am concerned.

    generally are able to raise hard money from max donors rather easily.  I tend to put my 99percenter money towards campaigns when and where it will make a bigger difference.

    That said, Landrieu IS a MUCH more progressive senator than Susan Collins, and that's a hell of a lot better than you can expect in LA if we let her go down.

    Oh, and FYI, Tester voted to stop the Senate from prohibiting the EPA from regulating GHG, which is what allows the EPA to promulgate the regulations which have effectively stopped new coal plant construction.  He also voted to end oil company tax loopholes, although that bill was blocked by filibuster.

      Any D in Montana has a narrow line to walk.

        should have been one of the first reforms taken as part of the bailout.  But the Senate voted for it 74-25 (Hillary ducked the vote).  Biden voted for it, Reid voted for it, Inouye voted for it, etc.  Incidentally, every single Republican Senator voted for it, which would have carried it without a single Dem vote.

          good (electable) politician.

          "To get re-elected."

          "Tough shit. It's still a shitty bill. NO."
