Elizabeth Warren raised $1,194,098 in her moneybomb yesterday. In the process, she also successfully stepped on Sen. Scott Brown's (R-MA) announcement of his reelection campaign:

A “money bomb” for Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren — timed to coincide with the reelection launch of her rival, Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.), netted almost $1.2 million for the consumer protection advocate.

Warren raised about $1,194,000 on Thursday in what her campaign called a grassroots money drive that signaled overwhelming enthusiasm for her campaign.

Goal Thermometer“Today the message is clear: We have the grassroots momentum and enthusiasm to take the ‘People’s Seat’ back from Wall Street and other powerful interests,” Warren said in a statement. “I am grateful for this show of support and will keep working my heart out for the small businesses and middle class families who deserve someone on their side in the Senate.”

This tremendous haul is yet another powerful demonstration of Warren's ability to inspire people everywhere. She needs every bit of this money too, both because she still trails Brown in cash on hand and because it won't be long before Karl Rove and Wall Street start throwing up even more negative ads against her.

Please, keep the donations pouring in. Contribute $6 to Elizabeth Warren on Orange to Blue.

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.
