This is it folks.  With one week to go until the recall elections, we must continue to fight in solidarity to take Wisconsin back for the people. 

Gov. Scott Walker and Sen. Scott Fitzgerald are pulling out all the stops to ignore the voices of Wisconsin to protect power for themselves and their wealthy special interest friends. That's why they've gone to Karl Rove, Reince Priebus and the Koch brothers to not only fund millions of dollars in TV and radio ads that falsely attack Democratic recall candidates, but to also send mailings with false Election Day information to strongly Democratic voters.

I've just started blogging here recently, but I wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that the Assembly Democrats are standing strong with you and the Democratic challengers fighting to take back the state Senate.

Earlier today, I asked our members to show their solidarity by making a donation to each of them six Democratic candidates that are fighting for working, middle-class families. Will you join the ADCC in showing your support by making a donation of $1 to each of the candidates with elections on August 9th or show your solidarity by signing up to use the DPW's online phone bank tool?

When the Wisconsin 14 courageously stalled Gov. Walker's assault on our shared Wisconsin values,  Assembly Democrats stayed and fought in solidarity by holding the floor for 62 hours in an attempt to stop him from balancing the budget on the backs of working families.

And when the voices of tens of thousands of Wisconsinites demanded that Gov. Walker's rubber-stamps be recalled, it was Rep. Fred Clark, Rep. Jennifer Shilling and Rep. Sandy Pasch that joined Jessica King, Shelly Moore, and Nancy Nusbaum in answering the call to take back Wisconsin for the people.

With Gov. Walker in the pockets of billionaires like David Koch and other wealthy, out-of-state special interests, the only way we win next Tuesday is if we continue to fight in solidarity.  This weekend, myself and other Assembly Democrats will be doing everything we can to help get out the vote so we can take back the state Senate.

I hope to see many of you out on the campaign trail because even with Voter ID and their dirty voter suppression tricks, Gov. Walker and his cronies can't stop a united, people-powered movement at the ballot box.

With your help, we'll take back the Senate next Tuesday and start the process that takes back the Assembly and recalls Gov. Walker so we can restore our shared Wisconsin values. 

Solidarity isn't just forever -- it's how we win. 

Thanks again for everything the DailyKos community is doing to help take Wisconsin back.
