Mike Tate, chairman of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, joined by United Wisconsin, announced that Wisconsinites have gathered over half-a million signatures to recall Governor Scott Walker. The effort is now over 90% of the way toward the number required to force the union-busting governor into an election, with one month left before the deadline to turn in the signatures. Watch:
Mike Tate: Exactly one month ago, the people of Wisconsin urged us to launch a grass roots campaign to save Wisconsin from Scott Walker’s extreme agenda that has enriched his friends and powerful corporate special interests at the expense of working middle class families. In just one month, more than 25,000 Wisconsinites have volunteered in our 42 field offices to circulate petitions…more than 27,000 small-dollar donors have contributed an average of $27 to counter Scott Walker's ability to raise unlimited corporate cash from the Koch brothers. And in just one month, more than 37,000 people have downloaded recall Walker petitions... In just 30 days, in less than half the time granted, you have done something truly amazing. Your strength and determination has helped us collect more than 507,000 signatures to recall Scott Walker and we are well on our way to beating our internal goal of collecting more than 720,000.
