Big Ed is coming to town
Well, not this town. Hudson. But it's in the same state.
Don't know Big Ed Schultz? Well, you could start here.
Then read on:
Big Ed Schultz Progressive FestThere's a lot of subversive stuff going on out in western Wisconsin, it appears. Check it out.
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.
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. Dinner tickets are $75.
