There's a rumor going on facebook that Senators Olsen, Schultz, and Hopper are wavering in their support for the governor's union-busting bill.  Schultz, it will be remembered, is the senator who offered the sunset clause "compromise," restoring collective bargaining rights in 2013, which has been rejected by both the governor and the unions.

Olsen and Hopper are two senators that have been identified as vulnerable to recall.  Obama won both of their districts in 2008, and Hopper was elected by a very slim margin.

If you live in Wisconsin, and especially if one of these three is your state senator, contact them immediately at the following numbers:

Senator Randy Hopper - (608) 266-5300 (608) 266-5300
Senator Luther Olsen - (608) 266-0751 (608) 266-0751
Senator Dale Schultz - (608) 266-0703 (608) 266-0703

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
