martha-laningMADISON - I hope you will consider joining me at this year's Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This year, Wisconsin's delegation will have the honor of nominating our party's candidate and hopefully the 45th President of the United States.

The Democratic National Convention occurs every four years and is an important event in our nation's history. It's an exhilarating time when Democrats from all across America come together to witness our leaders share their passion, ideas, and vision for the future.

This year, Wisconsin will bring 96 delegates and 7 alternates to the convention, and I'd like to encourage you to run for one of these delegate spots. The first step to becoming a delegate is submitting a Statement of Intent and Pledge of Support Form, which can be found at www.wisdems.org/philly2016.

These forms are due to DPW Headquarters by 5:00pm on Friday, April 8th, and can be submitted via the address or email below:

Democratic Party of Wisconsin
Attn: Delegate Processing
15 N Pinckney St, Suite 200
Madison, WI 53703
Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

District-level delegates and alternates are elected through a two-tiered caucus system. The first tier caucuses are held at the county level on April 17th, and the second tier caucuses are held at the congressional district level on May 1st. Locations for all of these caucuses will be made available on our website in March.

For more information about the Democratic National Convention, please visit www.wisdems.org/philly2016.

Thank you,

Martha Laning
DPW Chair

teaching-studentsAFT and WEAC Throw Support to Russ’s Bid for U.S. Senate.


MIDDLETON – Today top Wisconsin educators endorsed Russ Feingold for U.S. Senate. Citing Russ’s commitment to high-quality public education, strong support for Wisconsin’s teachers, and commitment to working and middle class families, the American Federation of Teachers - Wisconsin (AFT) and Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC) threw their support behind Russ’s senate bid.

russ-feingold"WEAC supports Russ Feingold because of his high respect for public education and working families,” said WEAC President Betsy Kippers. “He stated that he owes everything he is to public school teachers, public education and that educators should be honored, not attacked. He told us ‘I am running to fight for the rights of working people and educators.’ We stand behind Russ Feingold on behalf of our students, families and communities," said Kippers.

"Russ shares our commitment to high-quality public education from pre-kindergarten through college and our serious concern about America's student loan debt crisis,” said AFT-Wisconsin President Kim Kohlhaas. “My fellow AFT-Wisconsin members could not be happier to support Russ Feingold in this crucial election."

Over the last two weeks, Russ has crisscrossed the state of Wisconsin to meet and hear from students and communities about the crippling impact of the student debt crisis. Since announcing his candidacy, Russ has traveled to all 72 of Wisconsin’s counties.
