Received this e-mail from Alison Lundergan Grimes' (D KY) grandmother on behalf of her granddaughter's U.S. Senate campaign:

I know I say this a lot, but I'm so proud of the campaign Alison has put together since entering this race one year ago.

One of the things I'm most proud of is Alison's commitment to standing with hardworking Kentucky families, including seniors.

Once elected U.S. Senator, I know Alison will work hard to protect the benefits and programs that seniors like me have paid into over a lifetime of hard work. She knows we deserve what we've earned.

She will support policies that strengthen programs like Social Security and Medicare, while also preserving these programs for our children and grandchildren.

That's why I'm asking you to stand with Alison's campaign today.

Sign our petition and tell Mitch McConnell that it's time to put seniors and hardworking families first.

While Alison will always stand up for seniors and future generations, Mitch McConnell's record says he'll do just the opposite. He’s voted to turn Medicare into a voucher system, voted to increase seniors' out-of-pocket costs, and voted to raise the Medicare eligibility age.

That's why we need to stand with Alison – we can't afford another six years of Mitch McConnell's failed leadership.

After a lifetime of hard work, Kentucky seniors deserve better.

Stand with me today and add your name to our petition.

Thank you for everything you’re doing to support Kentucky and my granddaughter.

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.
