Received this e-mail today from Governor Steve Beshear (D. KY) in support of Alison Lundergan Grimes' (D. KY) bid against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R. KY):
Everywhere I go, people ask me the same question: "Governor, can Alison beat Mitch McConnell?" I am here to tell you that not only can Alison beat Mitch McConnell, she is going to beat him with your help.

Alison can beat Mitch because Kentuckians know what’s at stake in this election. The unity and grassroots enthusiasm behind her campaign is something I haven’t seen in quite some time.

It’s not hard to see why.

Alison is a true public servant. I’ve worked with her over the past few years and have seen firsthand her tremendous commitment to Kentucky’s working families.

By electing Alison, we can send a clear message to Washington that we’re tired of the dysfunction and petty politics. By electing Alison, we’ll finally have a Senator who stands for everything that’s right about Kentucky, not everything that’s wrong with Washington, D.C.

Donate today and join me in standing with Alison. Let’s make sure she has the resources she needs to fight back against Mitch McConnell.

As the Commonwealth’s first female Senator, Alison will always fight for working families. She has led – and will continue to lead – the country with calls to increase the minimum wage, close the gender pay gap, and bring American jobs back from overseas.

Imagine what we could accomplish if we had a Senator who worked for these ideas rather than one who only works for himself. Imagine what it would be like to have someone in Washington fighting for us, rather than someone who only fights for gridlock and obstruction.

It’s time to stop imagining. It’s time to ditch Mitch and elect Alison Lundergan Grimes as our next U.S. Senator.

Contribute now and help Alison meet her goal before the end of quarter deadline. With your help we can finally ditch Mitch and build a better future.

Let’s get to work,

Governor Steve Beshear

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.
