MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Democratic gubernatorial candidate Brett Hulsey is inviting voters to come party with him over the weekend, as he launches his longshot bid to win the party's nomination.

Hulsey released his weekend campaign schedule on Friday with the subject line of "feel free to tag along."

Candidates who publicize their whereabouts in detail days in advance is increasingly rare. But Hulsey is running a shoestring campaign with little chance of success against the better funded and more organized effort of former state commerce secretary Mary Burke.

Hulsey's unusual campaign schedule reads more like a social calendar. It includes "Beers with Brett" at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Memorial Union Friday afternoon, two hours at the Madison farmer's market on Saturday morning and two hours of tailgating before the Brewers game that night.
