Received this e-mail today from PCCC regarding Senator Brian Schatz (D. HI):

The next U.S. Senator from Hawaii will be decided in less than a month. The winner will be either Colleen Hanabusa, a corporate Democrat who has voted to cut Social Security, or Senator Brian Schatz, a bold progressive who was one of the first to champion expanding Social Security along with us.

The debate they just had couldn't have made this clash any clearer. Schatz showed us what a Social Security champion looks like.

In the debate, Schatz called out Hanabusa for her vote for the Simpson-Bowles plan to cut Social Security. He looked at her and asked, “Do you regret this?” She backpedaled, denied it, and tried to say her vote wouldn’t cut benefits. Then, in rebuttal, he read a letter the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare wrote to her -- it was damning.

This is about the future of the Democratic Party and Social Security. If we want to protect and expand Social Security, we need Brian Schatz in the Senate. With less than a month to go before the primary election, Schatz needs our support now.  

Watch the epic video and chip in $3 to help Brian Schatz win his primary in less than a month.

Thanks for being a bold progressive.

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.
