Milwaukee — Dems must do a better job of communicating their positive accomplishments and appealing to working- and middle-class voters if they are to hold on to key political offices in Wisconsin, supporters were told Saturday evening at the state Democratic Party’s major annual fundraising event.

Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell chided his fellow Dems for allowing Republicans to “control the dialogue” regarding national issues such as stimulus efforts and national health care.

“We’ve got to get on the stick,” he said. “We can’t let the tea party become the only voice America hears.”
