Senator Barbara Boxer (D. CA) is helping raise funds for two Senators named Mark running in some tough races next year:
We haven't given up the fight to end the crisis of sexual assault in the military. Far from it. We're not going to stop until we get a vote -- and pass -- our legislation in both the Senate and the House, and send it to President Obama's desk.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has been such a powerful voice on this issue. But so have two other colleagues -- Senators Mark Begich from Alaska and Mark Pryor from Arkansas -- who've stood with Kirsten and me from the very beginning.

We need more allies like Mark and Mark in Congress, and we certainly need to keep Mark and Mark in the Senate. But they're both facing very tough re-election campaigns, running narrowly ahead of their right-wing opponents in the polls while facing millions of dollars in attack ads.

Mark and Mark need our support, right now. Will you help?

Please contribute $50, $100 or more to the campaigns of Senators Mark Begich and Mark Pryor now -- and help them post strong end-of-year fundraising reports before the December 31 deadline!

Mark Begich and Mark Pryor are key leaders in our fight against military sexual assault. But they're also crucial votes to keep our Democratic majority in the Senate.

The polls are tight: Mark Begich leads a pack of right-wing opponents by only a handful of points in Alaska. And Mark Pryor is ahead of tea-party candidate Tom Cotton by just one point in Arkansas.

Meanwhile, Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, and national Republican groups have put these two races at the top of their target list. In fact, outside right-wing groups have already spent $1.8 million attacking Mark Pryor alone!

The road to a Republican Senate majority runs through Alaska and Arkansas. And we can't yield an inch.

We need to stand with Mark and Mark, right now.

Please contribute $50, $100 or more to the campaigns of Senators Mark Begich and Mark Pryor now -- and help them post strong end-of-year fundraising reports before the December 31 deadline!

If you care about ending the crisis of sexual assault in the military, and you care about keeping our majority so we can keep fighting to put hard-working American families first, then I ask you to support Mark Begich and Mark Pryor today.

Contribute $50, $100 or more now!

Thanks so much for helping Mark and Mark.

In Friendship,

Barbara Boxer
U.S. Senator

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.
