Wisconsin pols featured as speakers on Tuesday

Wisconsin Democrats will be featured on Tuesday at the national convention, with both Gov. Jim Doyle and U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin of Madison addressing the delegates.

The governor's office has said Doyle will discuss economic issues as part of Tuesday's program theme, "Renewing America's Promise," which will be highlighted by speeches from Clinton and former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner.

"Our basic promise in this country has to be that we can go as far as our hard work and talent will take us," Doyle said in a statement on his speech to delegates. "I am honored to address such an important issue before a national audience and help chart a new course for America."

Baldwin, who backed Clinton in Wisconsin's primary, will also speak Tuesday. Baldwin was also part of the 20-member Democratic national platform drafting committee, which is set for approval at the convention.

She called the platform "an extremely strong document," and said she was proud of both the process and the final product. Baldwin said the DNC held over 1,600 listening sessions across the country to get input on the document.

"This was a very unique process this year compared to prior years," Baldwin said. "It was very clear that both the Obama campaign and the DNC wanted this to be the most inclusive process possible."
