Progressive Champ Brian Schatz (D. HI) racked in another big endorsement in his primary battle with Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D. HI):
We are proud to announce our endorsement of U.S. Senator Brian Schatz for re-election in Hawaii.

When we asked our 4,285 Hawaii members who they support, the answer was overwhelming: By 4 to 1 they support bold progressive Brian Schatz.

When we asked thousands of PCCC members why we should endorse Sen. Schatz, the top reason was that he is a Social Security hero!

Brian Schatz was one of the first U.S. senators to endorse expanding Social Security benefits. His more conservative Democratic primary opponent refuses to rule out cuts.

Will you donate $3 to Brian Schatz to help keep this bold progressive in the Senate?

There were other top reasons PCCC members supported Sen. Schatz.

In addition to being a Social Security hero, Brian Schatz is one of the Senate’s top leaders on the climate crisis. He recently led an all-night Senate debate that made big news and thrust progressive solutions into the national conversation.

Like Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Schatz is a true partner to progressives.

He recently came to our PCCC candidate training to mentor new candidates. And tonight, he will welcome our PCCC team into his campaign headquarters as we start immediately organizing volunteers on his behalf.

Will you donate $3 to Brian Schatz to help keep this bold progressive in the Senate?

Thanks for being a bold progressive.

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.
