It is 11 days away from the critical, all-important recall election that will decide the fates of not only Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch; but the 4 GOP State Senators under recall (Scott Fitzgerald, Van Wanggaard, Terry Moulton, and Jerry Petrowski); whether sanity, decency, honesty, and integrity rule the day or corruption, deceit, homophobia, anti-women measures, more job losses, and union-busting dominate the state; and even the 2012 (and future) Elections in November.

Even though our side is getting vastly outspent by the largely out-of-state funding directed to pro-Walker/pro-Kleefisch groups, we hope sanity and decency will (hopefully) prevail, with Tom Barrett as the new Governor, Mahlon Mitchell as the new Lt. Governor, and Lori Compas, Donna Seidel, John Lehman, and Kristen Dexter as your new State Senators. That's assuming our side gets enough votes, and we need to peel off some of the anti-Walker/anti-Recall voters to our side. I hope the ALL the Republicans being recalled are pink-slipped, red-carded, and voted out of their offices.

The polls open at 7AM CDT and close at 8PM CDT, on June 5th, 2012.

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.
