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.

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.
