Received this e-mail today from Charlie Crist's (D. FL) gubernatorial campaign:
Today I am excited to release "Fair Shot Florida," the first part of my comprehensive plan to grow Florida's economy from the middle class out.

Take a look at the plan yourself -- then share it with your friends and family.

Here's what I plan to do if you give me the honor and privilege of serving as governor:

Restore Rick Scott's cuts to public school funding -- because our kids deserve to be our number one priority.

Urge the Legislature to raise the minimum wage to $10.10, because every Floridian deserves the dignity of being able to support their family.

Extend health care coverage to the almost one million Floridians who need it, creating 120,000 jobs and generating more than $5 billion in tax revenue for state and local governments.

Make higher education and vocational training more affordable by creating a loan-forgiveness program, a student loan financing authority, and making it easier for "first in the family" students to afford college.

Bring schools and business together to make sure that Florida's workers are learning the skills they need from day one.

Under Rick Scott, the scales are tipped in favor of the wealthy, the special interests, and the corporations. "Fair Shot Florida" is about giving everyday Floridians a chance at success.

Learn more about the first part of our plan -- then pass it along:

God bless you,

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.
