Joshua Chamberlain and his troops turned the tide at Gettysburg when they executed a bold and courageous maneuver. Running out of ammunition they attacked, and with that move held the high ground at Little Round Top while the rest of the Union army got their sh*t together and ultimately put an end to the evils of secession and slavery.

Today we have an analogous situation when it comes to the battle for control of the US Senate. While the Koch traitors have armed their minions and are massing for a frontal assault, the Democrats are still fumbling around trying to get their forces in order.

There is a great slate of Progressives running for Congress this cycle and the PCCC and Elizabeth Warren are helping to give them the ammunition they need.

Great candidates like Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI), who is in a tough primary with Colleen Hanabusa (D-Monsanto).

And Rick Weiland (SD-Sen), a populist supporter of single payer healthcare who can help HOLD Sen. Tim Johnson's South Dakota Senate seat for Democrats.

And of course, my own favorite- Shenna Bellows (ME-Sen), a proven champion of civil liberties who is mounting a terrific challenge to replace a Republican CIA apologist.

These candidates have put themselves forward for the good of the nation. We need to have their backs. I am donating to each of these campaigns, because with the balance of the Senate at stake, EVERY seat is important.

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.
