MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Democratic state Rep. Brett Hulsey will not be given a speaking slot at the state party convention.

Husley is mounting a long-shot run for governor and has upset many with his outlandish stunts, including promising and then deciding against handing out homemade Ku Klux Klan hoods before the Republican Party convention.

Democratic Party spokeswoman Melissa Baldauff said Tuesday that Hulsey did not ask for a speaking slot at the weekend meeting that begins June 6 in the Wisconsin Dells and he will not be given one.

The only one of four Democratic candidates for governor who will be speaking is former state Commerce secretary Mary Burke. Marcia Mercedes Perkins and Hari Trivedi are also running and have until June 2 to submit the required signatures to get on the ballot.
