Not much of a diary.  More of a FYI.  As most of  our dear readers know, Wisconsin faces a recall election of our Governor, Lt. Gov, four state senators, two turtle doves, and a sandhill crane in a cornfield.  (nix that last part). Tonight  at the Madison Concourse hotel there is a candidate forum. I think that means they all get to say how lousy Scott Walker is and how much better they will be.

This one has the support of that union, that one has the support of this senator, the other one is going to save our wetlands, someone else will restore collective bargaining. They are all good humans.  None of them are Walker!

Jump, Itzal, Jump,

From the Dane Dems,

The Dane Dems will be holding a Gubernatorial Candidate Forum and DPDC members-only straw poll at 7:00PM at the Concourse Hotel in Madison (1 W Dayton Street). Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, Wisconsin Secretary of State Doug La Follette and Wisconsin State Senator Kathleen Vinehout have all agreed to participate.

The meeting and forum are open to the public and we expect a great turnout. Hopefully you can make it!

For the Straw Poll - you have to be a member of the Democratic Party of Dane County in order to vote in the straw poll. If you live in Dane County and joined the party by sending in membership to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin or through, you are a member of the Dane Dems. DPW members residing outside of Dane County will not be able to vote in the straw poll. If you are not a member, you can join the Dane Dems at the meeting. If you are unsure of your member status, you may call the DPW office at 608-255-5172 to verify.

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.
