Ousted Dem delegate heading to Denver anyway

Deb Bartoshevich, the Wisconsin Hillary Clinton supporter stripped of her Democratic delegate status after she opted not to back Barack Obama for president, says she'll be going to the Democratic National Convention in Denver anyway.

Just not inside the convention hall, and not with Democrats.

Bartoshevich told WisPolitics at a house party she hosted for the McCain campaign on Aug. 14 that she'll be heading to Denver Sunday to participate in activities with the Republican Party before and during the first day of the convention. Bartoshevich said she plans to stay just one night in Denver.

She said she doesn't have plans yet to attend the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul, but said she would "love to" if asked.

Republican Party of Wisconsin spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski, who attended the house party, said the RPW was looking into the possibility of getting Bartoshevich an invitation.

Bartoshevich said she is finding a lot of people who are saying they're not going to vote. "Don't give up that freedom; go out there and vote," she said. "Just vote for who you believe will be the best person to lead this country."
