Elizabeth Warren talks to supporter
Democrats aren't afraid of Elizabeth Warren in solid Red territory.
Two weeks ago:
Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes said Thursday that U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., will campaign in Kentucky against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell [...]

After the [failed student loan] vote, Warren told MSNBC's Chris Hayes, "One way I'm going to start fighting back is I'm going to go down to Kentucky and I'm going to campaign for Alison Lundergan Grimes."

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren will campaign for Natalie Tennant in West Virginia next month in a push to keep a Democratic Senate seat.

Warren will accompany Tennant in the Eastern Panhandle on July 14 as she rolls out an education agenda. Tennant's campaign provided trip details to The Associated Press.

So it's only June, yet Elizabeth Warren has already announced campaign appearances in conservative Kentucky and West Virginia. You can bet that the Grimes and Tennant campaigns have tested Warren's appearances, and that they extended the invitation means the results were good—that Warren is more of a positive than a negative. The Grimes campaign has been particularly cautious, yet even they aren't afraid of Warren.

Makes sense, since these midterms will be a base turnout year, and Warren has got that niche locked up. Furthermore, and related, Democrats will win if women turn out in droves, and yup, Warren helps with that, too.

There has been much energy spent trying to turn Warren into a boogeyman. This is proof that those conservative efforts have failed miserably.

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.
