In October, I wrote about Mahlon Mitchell and my mission to get him to run for Governor of Wisconsin against Republican Scott Walker in a recall election. I am proud to announce that he is now running for Lt. Governor against Republican Rebecca Kleefisch.

Yesterday, my campaign sent out the following press release:
 

SHEBOYGAN – Asher Heimermann, Democratic candidate for Wisconsin’s 26th Assembly District, has endorsed Mahlon Mitchell for Lieutenant Governor in the recall election against Rebecca Kleefisch.

“Mahlon Mitchell has been a strong advocate for hardworking families of Wisconsin and I’m proud to support his candidacy,” Heimermann said. “Mahlon is the only candidate who will be honest and work for citizens of Wisconsin.”

Mahlon Mitchell is the current President of the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin. Assuming the office January 2011, he became the first-ever African American president for the organization. Mitchell has been a firefighter for more than 13 years in The City of Madison and was promoted to lieutenant in 2010.

Asher Heimermann is a Democratic candidate running against incumbent Republican Mike Endsley in the Wisconsin State Assembly. Heimermann is a small business owner specializing in new media and website development.

Both Mitchell and Heimermann are critics of Governor Scott Walker’s collective bargaining changes, which prompted weeks of demonstrations in Madison last year and also prompted several recalls against republicans.

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.

    To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. - Theodore Roosevelt 1918

    he is running. He stood up for teachers, librarians and snow plow drivers when he didn't have to and it was a risk.
