Wisconsin Democrats are pouring it on now. They are going to file recall petitions against a fifth Republican state Senator, Alberta Darling, this time with a massive 30,000 signatures in tow:
Dems will file a massive amount of signatures tomorrow to trigger a recall election against a fifth Wisconsin GOP state senator, I’m told.
Graeme Zielinski, the spokesman for the Wisconsin Democratic Party, confirms to me that Democrats will submit approximately 30,000 signatures for the recall of Alberta Darling — nearly 150 percent of the 20,343 required.
This is the fifth time Dems have collected far more signatures than necessary for a recall — all but ensuring that all five recall elections will actually happen.
Before this year, only four state legislators had ever had successful recall petitions filed against them in Wisconsin history. Democrats have already single-handedly broken that record, and will file even more recall petitions before this is all done.
You know who made this happen? Thousands of volunteers. They took time off work, family and weekends to knock on doors in the snow (yes, it's still snowing in Wisconsin) gathering over 150,000 signatures in less than two months. No one ever paid them a dime, but they kept the fight going.
Send a short thank you note to the volunteers who gathered recall petition signatures against Wisconsin Republicans. You can write a note by clicking here. I've already been in touch with the recall organizers in Wisconsin and they promised your note will be sent to all of the volunteers.
Let those on the front lines know you support them. Can you imagine how good it would feel to get thousands of thank you notes from around the country? Please, send a short thank you note to the Wisconsin volunteers who gathered recall petition signatures.
