The Wisconsin Democratic Party has a new ad out going after Governor Scott Walker's (R. WI) promise on job creation in the Badger State and they could use our help keeping it on the air:

As Wisconsin ranks 38th in the nation in job creation, Scott Walker is running away as fast as he can from his central campaign promise to create 250,000 new jobs saying it “wasn’t so much to hit a magic number” and “it’s really not about jobs.”

Sure didn’t sound that way when Walker said this back in 2010: "I want my Cabinet secretaries to have branded across their heads, `250,000 jobs.' I want them to know their job is on the line because my job is on the line to create 250,000 jobs in the private sector."

This is as crass and blatantly political a move as we’ve ever seen from Scott Walker, and that’s saying something.

That’s why the Democratic Party of Wisconsin has created a new web video highlighting Scott Walker’s complete abandonment of his 250,000 jobs promise. Click here to watch the video, share it with your friends, and chip in $10 or whatever you can to help us put it on TV:

We don’t have the Koch Brothers lining our pockets and we can’t afford to buy out all the airwaves like Scott Walker can.

But what we can do is take advantage of something we have out our disposal that Scott Walker doesn’t – people power.

The people of our great state are the ones who are struggling to get ahead because of Scott Walker’s actions, and it will be the people of our great state who spread the word about the need for change.

So we’re launching our video on social media and asking our grassroots supporters like you to share it with your friends and family. Watch the new video, share it with your friends, and chip in $10 or whatever you can to help us get this on the air:

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.
