Trial Distracting Some Attention from Convo

The state Dem convention begins in La Crosse tomorrow with attention centered on Gov. Jim Doyle's bid to win a second term, the AG's primary race between Peg Lautenschlager and Kathleen Falk, U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl's re-election bid, U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold's national aspirations and hopes of Dems to take back the state Senate.

But a lot of politicos this week have been watching what could be a pivotal federal trial in Milwaukee involving DOA employee Georgia Thompson and allegations involving political involvement in a state travel contract.

State Dem Party Chair Joe Wineke, in a new WisPolitics.com interview, called Doyle "the most ethical person I've ever known'' and rebuffed suggestions the trial would dampen Dem enthusiasm this weekend.
