The main event in the Wisconsin recall elections take place in only 12 days, and Democrats have taken the lead. We need at least three wins on Aug. 9, and polling shows us not only crushing Republican Dan Kapanke, but also narrowly ahead of Republicans Randy Hopper and Luther Olsen.

So, it's really simple. If these leads hold, we win.

Here is our plan to make that happen. In the two districts where Democrats hold narrow leads, we are going to run Google Blast ads during the final 120 hours of the election.

Goal Thermometer
This means two things. First, every single person who goes online in those districts will see our ads an average of 20 times by Election Day. Second, we will drown out any online ads run by Republicans and their corporate masters, making it all but impossible for the GOP to fight back online.

We need $13,596 per district to run these ads. Please, contribute $7 to Daily Kos to make it happen.

Everything is in place. We're leading in the polls. We've reserved the ad time. We've produced the ads using the best poll-tested, user-suggested message that takes the class war right at Republicans. You can see examples of the ads at the top and top right of this post.

No matter what is taking place in Washington, D.C., in Wisconsin we are on the brink of proving that determined grassroots activists, when united with a fighting Democratic Party, can stop the forces of austerity in their tracks. Please, contribute $7 to Daily Kos to make that victory happen.

Update: We've raised enough money to run the ads in one of the districts, but we need to run them in both. Please, chip in $7.

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.
