She's back and she's here to help EMILY's List defeat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R. KY):
I asked EMILY's List if I could send you a note because I'll be honest -- I'm pretty nervous about what will happen if Mitch McConnell is reelected and Democrats lose the Senate.
From trying to cut access to affordable health care to advocating for policies that work against the unemployed, there is no doubt about it -- Mitch McConnell and his Republican cohorts aren't backing down in their War on Women.

Look, I know firsthand how tough it can be for women to get ahead. Before my own mother, Naomi, became a singer, she struggled to find work and had to raise two daughters on a nurse's income. Luckily, we were able to overcome our struggles but I saw every day how tough it is for families to get ahead.

That's why I'm so proud to be part of an organization like EMILY's List. A group that simply won't stand for Republicans' anti-woman agenda? A community that fights tooth and nail for economic opportunity? An organization that works every day to elect pro-choice Democratic women? Count me in!

Will you join me and send Mitch McConnell and his anti-woman cohorts packing? Make a donation right now.

Some of the things he does make me think we're living in the 1950s. Voting 'yes' to defund Planned Parenthood? 'Yes' on cutting access to essential healthcare for our women in the military? Voting to block equal pay legislation, just two weeks ago?

Seriously, this feels like a Mad Men episode.

EMILY's List and I are on the same page -- it's time to ditch Mitch and his GOP allies. Can you donate right now and help us get his anti-women agenda out of Washington?

I don't know about you, but this hits awfully close to home for me -- and it's not just the Kentucky connection. Thanks for chipping in to help us ditch Mitch and his Republican allies.

All the best,
Ashley Judd

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.
