We need daily updates from those "in the know" on the ground in Wisconsin. It has been a couple of days since I've seen a diary about the recalls. With all due respect to the news makers of the day, we are only weeks away from what very well may be one of the most important political events in a generation: the Wisconsin recall of Republican governor Scott Walker. Let's not lose our focus here people. What can I do today to help with the cause of restoring workers' rights, women's rights and electoral integrity in Wisconsin and thereby the whole nation?
There are going to be a million distractions in this electoral "silly season" prior to the parties' national conventions. But there is nothing silly about the result in the Wisconsin gubernatorial recall. If you don't believe it just look at the campaign Scott Walker has launched; just look at the money being poured into that race from the right; just look at the ads already swamping the airwaves fighting the recalls; just look at the phony candidates Walker is running in the Democratic primaries.
We must keep our eyes on the prize here people. These recalls matter. Don't get distracted. These links will help keep you informed and involved: Wisconsin Public Television and Radio Election News: Wisconsin Democratic Party: and ActBlue Recall Scott Walker Campaign.
Every day, pay attention to this campaign, every day.
