Hundreds of delegates are expected to gather in Oshkosh this weekend for the annual state Democratic Party convention.  This year's focus will be on the governor's race, as more than a dozen Democratic candidates have announced their intention to run against Republican incumbent Scott Walker in November.  But first, they'll have to get through a crowded Democratic primary in August.
