Wineke celebrates Democratic gains

State Democratic Chair Joe Wineke amped up the capacity convention crowd with a victory recap of 2006, drawing the raucous applause from a boisterous crowd while pressing them to keep Wisconsin a blue state.

Wineke recalled how detractors declared he was "full of crap" when he called on Dems to re-elect Gov. Jim Doyle, and gain clout in the state Senate.

"People said 'Joe, you're full of crap,'" Wineke said. "And we won four state Senate seats."

Wineke complimented the party on for their solidarity on universal health care, taking a stand against discrimination, creating an LGBT and Latino caucus and for caring about the average American.

"We are a party that is diverse, they aren't," Wineke said of Republicans. "Republicans spent their convention trying to re-brand themselves."

"We're the party that stands for ending the war in Iraq, balancing the federal budget, saying no to Exxon-Mobil and yes for energy dependence, and yes for America's workers."

Wineke set the stage for Democratic presidential aspirations, saying "We need to elect a president in two years that will give us our country back."

"For the sake of our country, for the sake of our world, we must elect a Democrat as the President of the United States of America."
