Received this e-mail today from Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D. NY) in support of Amanda Curtis' (D. MT) campaign (who I wrote about a while back and will be writing about more soon):

I had to make sure you heard – Amanda Curtis won the Democratic nomination for Senate in Montana, giving us a fresh chance to protect our Senate majority.

The pundits had all but written us off in Montana. Now, we have a chance to prove them wrong – and by supporting Amanda, we give ourselves a chance to elect FIVE women challengers to the U.S. Senate.

But Amanda is just starting her campaign and without our immediate support to fight the attacks, she will not be able to lift off – it is up to us!

Because this is so important, Off The Sidelines will match every gift we get for Amanda in the next 12 hours, up to $5,000. Give now and have your money go twice as far to win and save the Senate!

This is our moment.

Click here to give right now, as much as you can, to have Off The Sidelines double your gift to elect Amanda in Montana.

Let me tell you about Amanda: She is a 34-year-old teacher who has been a champion for our values in the Montana Legislature. Issue after issue, she has stood up to extremist Republican leadership in her state – she is ready for Washington.

With Amanda, opportunity is knocking, Sam. Our Senate majority could come down to just ONE seat – and Nate Silver calls Senate control a toss-up. But they never saw us coming and they never saw Amanda coming.

Off The Sidelines is ready. Give as much as you can to support Amanda and your gift will be DOUBLED.

Click here to help us get critical resources to Amanda right away. Give as much as you can now.

Thanks for always being the first to step up,

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.
