Big Ed Schultz Progressive Fest

This sounds like fun! Get your tickets today. ROAD TRIP!!!! ;) Rae
Big Ed Schultz Progressive Fest

The number one progressive radio personality in the nation is coming to western Wisconsin on October 8. With over 2.5 million daily listeners, Ed Schultz has been called a “meat eating, gun toting, unabashed liberal.” Since only a handful of newspapers and radio stations in Wisconsin offer a progressive political viewpoint, members of the Democratic Party of St. Croix County are proud to bring “Big Ed” to his first ever Wisconsin speaking engagement. Schultz has agreed to speak at an event in Wisconsin and he is eager to come to a state represented by Senator Russ Feingold. While fielding calls from listeners, he speaks up for unions, public schools, farmers, teachers, longshoremen, veterans, minorities and others who've never seen the inside of a stretch limousine.”

The Big Ed Progressive Fest will be held at the Coachman Supper Club in Baldwin, Wisconsin from 1-5 p.m. on Sunday October 8. Baldwin is 20 miles east of Hudson on just off the I-94 exit at Baldwin. The festival is a celebration of an emerging progressive movement and a move toward common sense politics. There will be music, progressive businesses and organizations represented, and political speakers.

Money raised from the event will go to help fund the campaigns of three Democrats running in the state assembly districts that include St. Croix County. At least two of the candidates have excellent chances to take back seats currently held by Republicans. As you all know, it takes time and money to mount these campaigns and we need at the help we can get.

Tickets for the afternoon Big Ed Progressive Fest are $25 for adults and $10 for students. Also on the evening of October 8, there will be a private dinner with Schultz at the Twisted Grille in Hudson beginning at 6: 30 PM.

Dinner tickets are $75. To purchase tickets or get more information, go to the Party web site at http://www.westernwisconsindemocrats.org/ or call St. Croix County Democrats campaign office at 715-381-9600. Tickets are limited so get yours today!

You do realize that Ed will say anything to become more popular and doesn't give a rats ass about anything republican or democrat, conservative or liberal. Ed cares only about himself. You would know this if you knew this guy when he was back in ND broadcasting NDSU and UND football games on the radio.
