Received this e-mail today from Shenna Bellows (D. ME) campaign:

Shenna Bellows, Democratic candidate in Maine for US Senate, speaks to the Portland Democratic City Committee town caucus in the East End School cafeteria in Portland, Maine, USA, on March 3, 2014. Bellows is trying to unseat incumbent Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins in the 2014 election. The town caucus had speeches from various other local candidates and also served to choose delegates for the 2014 Maine State Democratic Caucus.
You should have been at the Maine Democratic Convention this past weekend.  After an impressive floor show in which hundreds of supporters marched to the stage, Shenna electrified the crowd with an impassioned speech about her working class roots and commitment to progressive values.

This speech reminded us why we are here, working for Shenna day and night: to give a voice to those who have been "left out and left behind."

If you were as moved as we were, please share the video with friends and family so that our message can spread as far and wide as possible.

Thanks for being with us on this campaign.

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.
