Rock with Karen Lewis!

Many teachers and friends are headed for Chicago tomorrow to stand and march alongside the striking teachers associated with the Chicago's Teachers Union. The gathering begins at 5:pm Chicago time. If you are in the Madison, Wisconsin area, you can find out more about the caravan leaving tomorrow morning, or simply read more, here: madison_fights. Everyone else might consider searching for more info, perhaps considering going to Chicago yourself as well. Eh? Eh? Weather will be great, btw. Chicago is always fun.

Walker’s lead in Wisconsin recall election tightens in new poll:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (Morry Gash/AP)Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker maintains a narrow lead in his recall election, but his standing has diminished in recent weeks, according to a new poll released on the eve of the election.

Walker leads Democratic challenger Tom Barrett, the mayor of Milwaukee, by just 3 percentage points in a new survey of likely voters (pdf) conducted by Public Policy Polling. Walker leads Barrett 50 to 47 percent, down from the 50 to 45 percent matchup PPP found in a poll conducted three weeks ago. The margin of error for this week's poll is plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.

According to PPP, Walker—who was targeted for a recall after waging war on state public employee unions in 2011—is winning among men, whites, seniors and residents of the Milwaukee suburbs. Barrett leads among women, minorities, young voters and residents of Milwaukee County and greater Madison. Barrett is also winning independent voters 48 to 46 percent, a lead that is within the margin of error.

Currently, polls, campaign finance statistics and anecdotal evidence suggest Republicans are more engaged and excited than Democrats for the June 5 race.......

Not with Ed Schultz in town. He's broadcasting from THE MIC 92.1 right now. According to John Nicols, a poll today confirms the above. (Folks in Chicago/Rkfd. can listen to WCPT AM 820, or FM 92.5, 92.7, 99.9)

Info on the Chicago protests! - http://o-c-c-u-p-y.livejournal.com/31167.html

May. 9th, 2012




CHICAGO: There were two good quicky stories on Chg news-radio WBBM (890), concerning the upcoming Chg NATO protests: The first included a prominant OCCUPY leader, about how OCCUPY was being besmirched by the corporation memos to employees: "Dress down. Look like a protester. Avoid being attacked." The other report was about the National Nurses United being diverted from their planned Daley Plaza for protest. I cannot access audio links on WBBM for you, but you can find via http://chicago.cbslocal.com/. Now, the Nurses are are resorting to a lawsuit. Jan Rudolpho, Midwest Director of Organizing, is presently discussing this, Madison, today's Obama announcement, and other issues on "Revoluton Radio" Boston, aired via Chg WCPT (AM 820, FM 92.5, 92.7, 99.9) - http://chicagosprogressivetalk.com/listen/ .
