Fewer parties on tap for Dem delegates

Compared to their GOP counterparts, Wisconsin's Democratic delegates will have fewer state-specific events at their national get-together.

Instead, the convention's social gatherings will be geared more toward parties like the Planned Parenthood Action Fund's "Sex, Politics, and Cocktails Party" and a concert featuring the Foo Fighters put on by Rock the Vote.

On Sunday, delegates are slated to attend a welcome reception that also includes the Iowa and Nebraska delegations.

And there's a party planned Tuesday night billed as an event to "Celebrate Wisconsin's Democratic Leaders." It will feature Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

The party is being hosted by G. Strategies LLC, the firm run by Barrett consultant and Dem operative Patrick Guarasci.

Guarasci said U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin is also expected to speak at the event, which is "really to celebrate the work done this year and work that needs to be done this fall."

Baldwin is also scheduled to address the convention next week, the only Wisconsin speaker currently on the docket. She also has a fundraiser planned during the convention, Dems said.
