I just received a fundraising email from the Democratic Party of Wisconsin announcing that the Recall Walker petition drive will begin on November 15. Mike Tate, state party chair, will make the formal announcement tonight on the Ed Shultz show later tonight.
Donations accepted here.
Text of the letter follows:
After weeks of discussion and positive collaboration with grassroots activists like you, today comes an historic announcement.
In just a few hours, I will go live on The Ed Shultz Show at 9:00 CST to announce that, in collaboration with United Wisconsin, the grassroots effort to recall Scott Walker will begin Nov.15th.
We wanted activists like you to be the first to hear the news because you know what it will take to win this fight.
In fewer than 37 days, we will need to organize, train and fund an army of grassroots volunteers who will need to collect more than 540,206 valid recall signatures.
Before I go on the air, can I count on you to make a donation of $11.15 towards our goal of raising $540,206 by Nov. 15th?
Wisconsin can't wait. Now is the time!
Chair, Democratic Party of Wisconsin
