Another great Senator we all admire is helping Senator Chris Coons (D. DE) fuel his campaign for next year:
If we want an America where Medicare and Social Security are safe, where Congress breaks the cycle of governing crisis by crisis, and where everyone pays their fair share, there’s only one thing we can do: Make sure we send the right people to Washington.

Our grassroots network stands with dedicated leaders working toward a strong middle class and equality for all Americans. And today, I’m writing about one of those people: Senator Chris Coons of Delaware.

Chris is running a strong reelection campaign in Delaware. But last time he faced voters, his opponent raised $7 million in just 7 weeks. There’s really no telling what he’ll face next year -- and he needs our support to be ready.

Let’s help Chris before the FEC filing deadline closes out the year. Give $5 or more right now to support him.

We’ve seen the damage the Tea Party can do when they take control in Washington. Just look at the House of Representatives. They shut down the government. They brought us to the brink of a catastrophic default. They’ve threatened to transform Medicare into a voucher system. And that was all in the past year.

Keeping Chris in the Senate is important. He’s a staunch ally on manufacturing, women’s rights, and any number of our other progressive priorities.

Chris deserves our support. If you can, consider giving $5 or more right now to support him and his team.

Thank you for reading, and for your activism.

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.
