Krugman Confirmed for Netroots

Keith Olbermann may have pulled out of Netroots Nation, the lefty blogger's conference coming to Providence June 7-10. But organizers can claim another progressive media star: New York Times columnist Paul Krugman. Mary Rickles, communications coordinator for the event, passed along the word today. More big names to be confirmed in the coming days, she says.

Thus far, Elizabeth Warren and Diane Ravitch are among the stars of the event. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Rickles says, has organized a panel on Citizens United that will include several other senators - Sherrod Brown of Ohio, among them.

Rickles says organizers are expecting about 3000 attendees - the largest Netroots Nation conference yet.
