Just two weeks in to the effort to recall the governor from office, organizers are more than half way there.
Organizers of the effort to recall Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch say they have now gathered over 300,000 signatures towards their goal. United Wisconsin executive director Meagan Mahaffey says those signatures were collected in just the first 12 days.
Mahaffey says the rapid progress shows “people are seeing through Walker’s deceptions and are moving to take our state back.”
United Wisconsin launched its recall effort on November 15th, collecting more than 105,000 signatures in the first week alone. They have until January 17th to collect the 540,208 signatures needed to trigger a recall election.
