Yesterday on Daily Kos, I introduced folks to Nancy Rudolph from Maine -- whose personal health care story is featured in the our new PCCC/DFA ad holding Olympia Snowe accountable on the public option.

In just one day, the momentum is amazing.

MSNBC reported on the ad live from the White House lawn! Many others also reported on the ad -- ABC, Washington Post, Huff Post, USA Today, Digby, TPM, and local news shows across Maine. (See YouTube highlights reel on the right.) Together, we're having a big impact.

Plus, we're now $58,000 $65,000 toward our goal of $100,000 to air this ad in Maine and DC -- you can add to that momentum here.

(UPDATE: Thanks to those who put us on the most recommended list. Please keep the rec's coming!)

This is a critical week for the public health insurance option, and our ad represents progressives putting tangible pressure on Sen. Snowe as she prepares to take key votes on the Senate Finance Committee.

More ads are currently being prepared for other key Finance Committee members (our video team says Montana is lovely this time of year -- hint, hint).

None of this is possible without regular folks chipping in. Some have given $100. Others have given $25 or even $10. All of those people deserve our thanks -- because collectively, that will get us to the $100,000 mark and ensure that Snowe knows that her constituents are seeing the ad to the right over and over again.

If you have not yet donated, now's the time. Tomorrow morning, we'll be placing another ad buy based on how much has been raised so far. Can you chip in?

Thanks so much.

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.
