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.

      Yes, all these races are close and we can't take any of them for granted -- and you're right that these six are among the closest. Also, CA-36

      We polled CA-36 a couple weeks ago and Dr. Raul Ruiz is within the MOE -- down just two at 45-43.

      Ruiz has a tremendous life story and I encourage everyone to take a look at him. Republican Mary Bono Mack has ignored her district and her constituents for too long -- and this year, she's going to pay for that.

      have a real shot, especially in red states like Indiana.  Patrick Murphy from the PA 8 was one of the more liberal Blue Dogs and I donated to him.  I also donated to Charlie Melancoln's campaign when he went up against David Vitter.  In a red state like Indiana, I'll gladly donate money to Donnelly's campaign.  He did vote for the health care reform bill and votes with the party 77% of the time.  He's not as liberal on the social issues like Evan Bayh was but he is way better than by on economic issues.  I believe he's pro-union.
