Republican direct mail piece in Wisconsin SD-21

Only two months after a national furor erupted over the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Wisconsin Republicans are featuring a menacing-looking figure in a hoodie in a new piece of direct mail.

Goal ThermometerYou can see an image of the mailer above, and click on it for a large view.

The mailer, which was paid for by the Republican State Leadership Committee, targets former state Sen. John Lehman, who is the Democratic nominee in the recall election in the decisive 21st state senate district (SD-21).

Daily Kos polling shows SD-21 to be the most competitive of the four upcoming state state recalls, with Lehman trailing Republican incumbent Van Wannggaard by a narrow 48-46 margin. Since the Wisconsin state senate is currently a 16-16 split between Democrats and Republicans, the outcome of this election will decide which party controls the chamber.

Please, help fight back against this disgusting attack by chipping in $3 to John Lehman on the Daily Kos Wisconsin recall fund.

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.
