The Progressive Change Campaign Committee is helping two great progressive Democrats, Senator Brian Schatz (D. HI) & Rep. Mike Honda (D. CA-17), win their primaries:
In Washington DC, there are leaders... and then there's everyone else.

We all know Elizabeth Warren is a leader. But you should also know about first-term Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) and Representative Mike Honda (D-CA).

Sen. Schatz and Rep. Honda are leading the fight to EXPAND Social Security -- and are being challenged in primaries by more conservative Democrats willing to CUT Social Security.

These leaders stood with us recently at local events in support of increasing Social Security benefits. Can you stand with them and donate $3 to their campaigns?

Way before it was cool, Mike Honda joined Reps. Alan Grayson and Mark Takano in promising to vote against any cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefits.

(They made it cool. 50 Representatives have now made concrete promises.) Mike Honda is also an original co-sponsor of a new bill to EXPAND Social Security benefits.

Brian Schatz was Lt. Governor and was appointed by Hawaii's progressive governor to fill a vacant Senate seat last year. He's up for election in 2014.

When Senators Tom Harkin and Mark Begich launched the campaign to INCREASE Social Security benefits, Brian Schatz was right there with them. (We're working with these senators to make this idea cool. Leadership!)

Their opponents refuse to promise to vote against cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefits -- and are nowhere to be found on increasing benefits.

Reward two bold Social Security heroes for standing strong with us. Please donate $3 today:

Thanks for being a bold progressive -- and for rewarding bold leadership.

-- Adam Green, PCCC co-founder

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.
