Received this e-mail today from Heather Mizeur's (D. MD) campaign:

There are a lot of words I could use to describe the support you’ve always shown me, but I like this one…AMAZING! I couldn't ask for a better network of grassroots supporters as we go into this final stage of the campaign before the primary on June 24. Thank you for always standing with me.

When I was on that stage last night, I was honored to represent you and the ideas that truly matter to us. I couldn’t have gotten this far without you and your faith in my vision for Maryland.

The Baltimore Sun had this to say today about last night’s debate:

[Mizeur's] best moment of the debate...allowed her to tell voters that she brought not just different ideas to the contest but also a different attitude; her promises to end gerrymandering, reform campaign finance and put the people and not special interests at the heart of governance no doubt resonated with those who are disillusioned with Annapolis.

I also have some great news to share with you. Today, our first ad—the one you helped fund—is up on the air! I am so proud of the work we’ve done together, and I’m excited about the momentum we have for these last 21 days before the primary.

If you haven’t had a chance to watch our first ad, please click here and check it out!

Thank you again for everything,

Heather

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.

  •  End Gerrymandering == Unilateral Disarmament (0+ / 0-)

    As long as every GOP-controlled state has redrawn its Congressional map to minimize Dem representation, I hardly think Heather's promise is helpful.

    •  MD has some of the worst gerrymandered districts (2+ / 0-)

      in the country. While I think it's important to retain minority representation, there have GOT to be ways to redistrict that don't end up looking like spaghetti. Plus parts of MD are very VERY blue, so it wouldn't necessarily be disarmament.

      I hear what you are saying, but I think there are ways of threading this needle that result in more coherent congressional districts without giving up representation. That would give us the moral high ground and create a better sense of cohesiveness/responsiveness within the districts.

      (Seriously, the gerrymandering here is almost unbelievable.)

        Our districts weren't drawn for minority representation.  They were drawn to maximize Dem congressional seats.

        You're saying we can draw "nicer" districts that still result in a 7-1 Congressional delegation?  And even if they don't, doing so will somehow shame the GOP into likewise drawing fairer maps?

        I don't think so.

    Heather seems to get stronger, Anthony and Doug, not so much. A lot of this depends on the Baltimore Sun discovering that she's a credible candidate.

    tonight.  I was happy to tell them of my support for Heather Mizeur.  Hoping my small voice helps turn the tide.

    But after the first debate, we decided to go for her for sure, and made a contribution to her campaign. Brown seemed to be mouthing nothing but platitudes, and Gansler reinforced my already negative impressions of him. His description for the basis of the Court of Appeals' public reprimand of him when he was Montgomery County State's Attorney, and why he considers that reprimand to be "a badge of honor" was somewhere between highly disingenuous and outright false.

    voting for Brown, as the best way to ensure that Gansler does not win.

    And while I still really dislike Gansler (and always have, ever since he first ran for State's Attorney --  before he was Attorney General), Brown just hasn't impressed.

    I usually do not mind voting for the lesser of the two evils. That's politics. I don't think perfection should be the enemy of the good.

    But not this time. I just can't get excited about Brown (and, frankly, I really wanted to).

    So, having reconsidered, I'm voting not against any candidate, but for the candidate that is head and shoulders above than the rest.

    Heather Mizeur would make an absolutely fantastic Governor. She has my (and my wife's) support, 100%.

    Help spread the word, folks.
