Please, support the recall by contributing $10 to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, which is leading the effort to gather recall petition signatures.
The Democratic Party of Wisconsin reports that over 2,000 people have reported for recall canvassing duty, and that 15% of the signature goal was reached in the first weekend.
Graeme Zielinski, a spokesman for the party, tells me that activists working on the recall push already collected over the weekend 15 percent of the total necessary signatures needed to force recalls in all eight of the GOP districts Dems are targeting. He says that the party -- which is helping to coordinate and keeping track of outside efforts to gather signatures -- set itself a goal of 10,000 signatures for the weekend, and has already exceeded it by 35 percent.
Zielinski also claims that recall forces over the weekend put more than 2,000 volunteers on the street to collect signatures. He also says volunteers have collected 26 percent of the signatures required in one district, and 20 percent in another, though he wouldn't say which ones, because Dems want GOP senators to fret that they are the ones in question.
Yesterday, Wisconsin Kossack kat herder added:
Over 600 Darling Recall Canvassers (34+ / 0-)
Made it through the Shorewood office over the weekend, all with recall papers. Trainings went non-stop from 9:30 to 3:30 each day.

At Daily Kos, we are taking a two-pronged approach to the must-win recall. First, in Wisconsin we are using emails, blog posts and Facebook ads to sign up recall petition canvassers. Second, we are asking all Kossacks outside of Wisconsin to contribute to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, which is organizing the signature-gathering effort.
So far, 329 Wisconsin Kossacks have signed up to canvass, and over 3,000 Kossacks nationwide have raised more than $40,000 to support the canvassers. You guys are playing a tangible, potentially decisive, role in making the recall happen.
The faster we gather signatures, the more pressure we pile on Republican state Senators. Today, we're upping that pressure by sending another email to Wisconsin Kossacks calling for even more recall petition canvassers. No matter where you live, you can support the canvassers by contributing $10 to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
