Moore calls for a Dem gold rush

Telling Dems that they have to dig for gold before the 2016 elections, Congresswoman Gwen Moore urged the party to work tirelessly to end the "nightmare" of Republican leadership.

The gold, she said, includes voter apathy, the state's youth, organized labor and women who are disenfranchised with laws that limit their control over their own bodies.

"When you leave here tonight," said Moore, of Milwaukee, "if anyone asks you who you are, you tell them, 'I'm a gold digger.'"

She said that this week, she thought back to everything that has happened since the elections in 2010 that put Scott Walker in the governor's office and sent Russ Feingold home. She walked through many of the big changes in the state since then, such as Act 10 and right-to-work.

"In weather terms, the condition for progressives was stormy and grim," Moore said.

But there is hope, she said, and 522 days until the 2016 election to turn that hope into reality.
