The Democratic Party of Wisconsin is now officially backing a citizen-led recall campaign against eight Republican state senators. The page announcing their support for the campaign, which is also a donation page to the Wisconsin Democratic Party, can be found here.
Greg Sargent interviews the chair of the Wisconsin Democratic Party about this development:
The Wisconsin Democratic Party has decided to throw its weight behind a nascent grassroots drive to recall a number of GOP state senators, a move that will considerably increase the pressure on them to break with Governor Scott Walker, the Dem party chair confirms to me.
"The proposals and the policies that Republicans are pushing right now are not what they campaigned on, and they're extreme," the party chair, Mike Tate, said in an interview. "Something needs to be done about it now. We're happy to stand with citizens who are filling papers to recall these senators."
We are going to be supporting the recall campaign. If you live in Wisconsin, sign up with SEIU and Daily Kos to help gather the necessary signatures.
As this story develops, we will have more on other ways you can help the recall effort. On Wisconsin!
