    May 31, 2012 (MADISON, Wis.) -- The challenger to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will get a high-profile campaign visit from former President Bill Clinton on Friday, part of a last-ditch effort by Democrats to prevent the GOP incumbent from becoming the first governor in U.S. history to survive a recall vote.

    Though President Barack Obama hasn't gotten publicly involved in the campaign, Clinton is the third prominent Democrat in recent days to appear in the state on behalf of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. Tuesday's election marks just the third time any governor in the country has faced a recall vote, and the incumbent was ousted in the other two.

    Clinton's visit is a nod to the importance of turnout for Democrats in Milwaukee, a stronghold for the party where Barrett must do well in order to win. Clinton was to appear at a morning rally with Barrett to encourage voters to cast their ballots early. Friday is the deadline for in-person absentee voting.

    Republican Scott Walker is the only governor in the country with a criminal defense fund.

    Two of Scott Walker's aides have been indicted for felonies.

    One of them has turned state's evidence.

    Rut roh!

    Actually I think the prosecutor in Milwaukee will decide the felony indictment.

    I was talking about the recall vote. But apparently you are so afraid of that that you want to mix it up with lots of other things.
