State Senator Jason Carter (D. GA) scored a big endorsement in his bid to unseat Tea Party Governor Nathan Deal (R. GA):
I’m honored. Today, the Georgia Chapter of the Sierra Club officially endorsed our campaign. Here’s what Georgia Chapter Director Colleen Kiernan had to say:

“Jason Carter has proven that he is the only candidate in the field willing to protect Georgia’s coast and environment. He has committed to supporting Georgia’s growing clean energy industries, which provide jobs while protecting our air and water. The Sierra Club will proudly mobilize our members to help Jason Carter win in November.”

Once our natural resources have been depleted, there is no going back. That’s why I am a proud advocate for our environment, and have fought against proposals that threaten our coast, our rivers, and our water supply.

I’ve championed legislation to make it easier for consumers to install solar panels. Making it easier for consumers to access renewable energy isn’t just critical for the environment – it is untapped potential for our state’s economy.

New transportation options have to be at the forefront of our state’s priorities. As governor, I will work with state, regional and local leaders to develop smart initiatives to increase our transit options, reduce traffic, and promote ride-sharing.

I’ve been proud to stand up for the environment during my time in the Senate – and my commitment won’t change when I’m governor.

If you think Georgia deserves leaders who will stand up for our environment, please contribute $10 to our campaign today at

Thank you, Sierra Club, for your support. Now, let’s get to work!

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.
