One more a not-a-diary before the votes come in. I just was down at Rob Zerban's office. I asked about internal polls. According to a young staffer, they have been on a four-day high with good  news.

Early in the campaign polling indicaed Mr Zerban had a name recognistion problem. Despite that for some time there has been a large undecided segment here in WI-01. That in itself is good news when going up against such an established incumbent. It sounds like the these folks have broken hard for Mr Zerban in the GOTV weekend.

My polling place has been busy all day. I've been by there a half-dozen times. I was past there an hour ago and it was the busiest I'd seen all day. Here in the City of Kenosha we are strong on Zerban. No name recognition issue in K-town. No lack of voter turnout.

So what the hell? It might happen. We've worked hard. If this is a bit of over-optimism, so be it. I'm gonna dial up the happy meter because Scott Walker, the Wisconsin Democratic Party has not finished paying you back.

Four more years!

Senate Majority Leader Reid.

Representative Rob Zerban.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

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.
