Received this e-mail today from Senator Tammy Baldwin (D. WI) in support of Mary Burke's (D. WI) bid to unseat Tea Party Governor Scott Walker (R. WI):

Baldwin, who has been appointed to serve on the Budget Conference Committee, was visiting campus and meeting with UW-Madison faculty and staff to discuss the importance of investments in research, science, and innovation to Wisconsin's economy.

I am so proud to support Mary Burke for Governor. For too long, Scott Walker’s divisive politics have made Madison seem an awful lot like Washington. He has put partisanship above the people of Wisconsin and allowed our state to slip to 35th in job creation.

It’s time we elect a governor who will work for everyone in Wisconsin and focus on moving our state forward.

That’s why I support Mary Burke to be the next governor of Wisconsin. Will you join me on Team Burke?

Mary will bring a different perspective - she's spent much of her life in the private sector. As head of strategic planning for Trek Bicycle, Mary helped grow the company to nearly 1,000 employees right here in Wisconsin.

Scott Walker has taken our state backwards and it's time we elect a governor who embodies Wisconsin’s progressive values.

As part of Mary’s Invest for Success job creation plan, she supports raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour to ensure that thousands of hard working Wisconsinites are able to support their families. Mary Burke will end Scott Walker’s attack on women's freedom to make our own health care choices, and will stand up for the freedom of all Wisconsinites to marry who they love.

This race is going to be incredibly close. A new Liberty Foundation poll has Mary Burke tied with Scott Walker 47-47. I was so grateful for all the support I received in 2012 from supporters across Wisconsin. But Democrats can’t sit 2014 out. I’m asking you to support Mary Burke with the same energy that I saw in 2012. Wisconsin can’t afford another 4 years of Scott Walker.

I’m proud to be on Team Burke. Are you?

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.
