Lt. Gov. candidate Henry Sanders will be at Drinking Liberally this Wednesday!

We are happy to welcome Henry Sanders, Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, to the next Drinking Liberally! (And that’s at 7PM on June 16 at Sugar Maple, 441 E. Lincoln Ave.)

Mr. Sanders will be facing Milwaukee’s state Senator Spencer Coggs in the primary. To be fair, we’ll try to get Sen. Coggs at a future DL. (Senator, you’re welcome to make a surprise appearance at this one.)

Drinking Liberally cannot endorse any candidate. Instead, we seek to bring them to you in the friendly confines of our fine drinking establishment so we can have a more personal conversation with them.

Future guests at Drinking Liberally include Lieutenant Chris Moews, who is challenging Sheriff Clarke in the primary, and state senate candidate and primary challenger Chris Larson. (Will we get Rep. Chris Sinicki? Find out!)

As always, we meet at 7PM onward at Sugar Maple, 441 E. Lincoln Ave. in Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood. See you there! And be sure to bring your questions for Henry Sanders, ad anyone else who shows up. To get more info on Henry Sanders, please visit his web site.

Also: Someone asked if Mayor Tom Barrett would be appearing at DL, as he’s running for governor. Mayor Barrett was our guest in 2007 at Club Garibaldi, and he helped fill the large back room with an enthusiastic audience. I’ll see if we can get him again before the election. This time probably would be at Sugar Maple. We shall see!
