This just in from Channel 3000:

MADISON, Wis. -- A Dane County judge on Friday rejected an appeal by Gov. Scott Walker's campaign for more time to examine the signatures on recall petitions.

The campaign has sought a two-week extension to review an estimated 1 million signatures.

I don't know what the appeals process is, but this is definitely a blow to Walker.    He had already been granted 30 days, but Judge Niess said Walker showed "no good cause" for an extension.

I apologize for the short diary, but this is just in.

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.
