Doyle Plans Focus on Stem Cells
The centerpiece of Gov. Jim Doyle's convention speech in La Crosse tomorrow will be his support for various stem cell initiatives, according to his campaign.
Jody Montgomery, a Verona mom, whose four-year-old daughter, Madeline, suffers from Type 1 diabetes, will introduce the governor Friday night for his keynote address at the convo. Doyle is expected to highlight his support for embryonic stem cell research, an issue that separates him from GOP opponent U.S. Rep. Mark Green.
Earlier in the afternoon, First Lady Jessica Doyle has plans to hold a 4 p.m. press conference outside the La Crosse Center with other families affected by stem cell initiatives.
The guv's camp also plans to use its campaign blog to provide pro-Doyle spin on the latest news from the convention.
