    Except for brief moments of unrealistic dreams of a "sweep" we always knew this would be close. Would be a nail-biter. Would be a fight like we've never fought before.

    We are taking on Republicans on their home turf! In their yard! With their rules!

    And the races are tight. Sure, thousands protested in Madison, but those thousands included people who can't vote in these recalls.

    Back in spring, we didn't even know if we could get signatures for 6 Republican state senators. But we did! Now we've got 4 or 5 really tight races.

    It is worth fighting to the end for all 6.

    As a commenter mentioned on another diary, with disturbing polling numbers, the fight is tribal. It doesn't matter if the sitting Republican has a mistress or a DUI or voted against unions or BadgerCare or whatever. It is a tribal fight and the dyed-in-the-wool Republicans will vote Republican NO MATTER WHAT. That is their strength.

    Our strength? We have to get the Democrats who are apathetic, unengaged, disenfranchised TO THE POLLS.

    Our ground game is our strength. We have the numbers if we can get the people to the polls. Do what you can to make it happen.
