Hot Dish's morning politics newsletter, Morning Hot Dish, is holding its first reader contest, in honor of today's third-quarter fundraising deadline.
There's been an abundance of one-word fundraising e-mails from politicians this week, and we've asked you to guess which politician sent out which each e-mail. Get the most right and win the prize: a mention in the newsletter.
E-mail your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. These are the e-mail subject lines:

Here's the item from the newsletter that inspired the contest:
“Deadline,” “Extremists,” “Dismantle,” “Sabotage,” “Determination,” “Gridlock,” “Wreckage,” “Hustle” and “Working.” These single words headline fundraising emails sent as the Sept. 30 Federal Election Commission deadline approaches. The bipartisan one-word subject fundraising appeals are part of what appears to be a move toward shortening subject-lines for the cash quests. Perhaps the goal is simply to get folks to open the email without noticing the one-word desire: Money. -- Rachel E. Stassen-Berger
