My home state continues to garner a lot of national attention, at least from the Left. Those gathered in Minnesota for Netroots Nation had Wisconsin on their collective minds. Pun intended.

[Hudson, Wisconsin] As we head into the heart of the summer months, national liberal organizations are focusing their political efforts on the Wisconsin state senate recalls.
At the recent Netroots Nation annual conference, held in neighboring Minnesota, leaders from several national organizations discussed their coordinated efforts to elect a Democratic state senate in Wisconsin.
Participants at the conference put in some sweat equity as well, boarding a bus and traveling to Hudson, Wisconsin where they distributed literature and knocked on voters’ door on behalf of Shelly Moore, the Democratic candidate and union activist running against Sheila Harsdorf (R-River Falls).
