Tom Barrett chides Scott Walker on repeal of waiting period for handgun purchases.

Barrett said he worried how such a repeal would affect domestic violence situations.

He added: "There are no surprise hunting seasons in the state of Wisconsin."

Barrett also described Walker's position as "a gift" to the National Rifle Association.

ATTN #UniteBlue:

Join Kelly Westlund's TwitterBomb starting at 6pm CST on Tues Sept 23rd w #WinWithWestlund. Let's get #WinWithWestlund trending! #DumpDuffy 

When Kelly Westlund announced her candidacy for US Congress in December 2013, she was called a long shot candidate going up against a two term incumbent.

Now with less than two months till election day, Westlund has moved from an unlikely contender to the 2014 cycle’s ‘dark horse’ underdog. She is one of Democrat’s lone pick up opportunities for the House of Representatives.

She has a growing coalition of support, from national union organizations, to local environmental nonprofits, to Progressive action pacs.

Participation is easy. Groups will be using #WinWithWestlund beginning at 6:00 pm

central on September 23. But to concentrate our efforts and demonstrate the power of our collective voices, there will be one twitter storm at 6:00 pm central time.

SAMPLE TWEETS:

Please feel free to customize and use any of these sample tweets beginning on

September 23 starting at 6:00 pm central.

Please join us tonight & get Kelly @Westlund4WI elected to Congress! Help trend #TeamKelly starting at 6pm Central. http://uniteblue.org/community/2014/08/kelly-westlund-is-one-step-closer-teamkelly/

Kelly Westlund is one step closer to being a part of Congress that our President and our country needs to get things done. Kelly has successfully won her primary and will now move on to the general election where she will face Tea Party incumbent, Rep. Sean Duffy. You remember Sean Duffy; the former Real World reality show participant and the guy who said he was struggling to survive off of his $174,000 congressional salary. That is just one example of how out of touch Duffy is with the real struggles every day Americans endure.

Sean Duffy is a part of the obstructionist congress that has our government at a near standstill. Our country can no longer put up with the do-nothing congress. America has real issues that require real solutions, put forth by legislators who want to see our country move forward, not backwards.

One way we can help Kelly defeat Duffy in November is by making sure the public gets to know her better. Kelly’s campaign isn’t a “My opponent is terrible, so you should vote for me” type campaign. Kelly is running for congress to actually make a difference in people’s lives. She believes in creating jobs and women’s issues (right to make her own decisions, equal pay for equal work). By vaulting Kelly’s name and her positions, she will be better suited to defeat Sean Duffy and become a productive member of our congress.

So, beginning at 6pm we are asking that you tweet using #TeamKelly to share why you support Kelly and her ideas on how we can make our country better for all of us, not just for the well-off. You can see a list of Kelly’s positions on various issues on her website.

Increasing Kelly’s exposure will help her compete against a Tea Party opponent who relies on about 60% of his campaign contributions from outside of Wisconsin. Our country deserves better legislators and better results to address the many issues we face. Kelly Westlund can be one of those legislators. She needs our help. Below are few sample tweets:

Thanks .@Westlund4WI for fighting for a woman’s right to make her own decisions. Smart decisions are made with women at the table. #TeamKelly

I’m proud to stand with .@Westlund4WI because women should earn equal pay for equal work. Let’s get to work, and elect @Westlund4WI.#TeamKelly

I’m supporting .@Westlund4WI because no one should work full time and struggle to make ends meet. We need family-supporting jobs. #TeamKelly

Kelly .@Westlund4WI fights for a living wage because everyone should have an equal opportunity to succeed. I’m on #TeamKelly.

I’m on #TeamKelly b/c she’s not afraid to stand up to powerful interests on behalf of working people. Stand with .@Westlund4WI this November. 

Below are few sample tweets, articles and videos that can help you learn more about who Kelly is and what she stands for. Increasing Kelly's exposure will help her compete against a Tea Party opponent who relies on about 60% of his campaign contributions from outside of Wisconsin. Our country deserves better legislators and better results to address the many issues we face. Kelly Westlund can be one of those legislators. She needs our help to get there.
