In addition to Governor Walker, several Republican state Senators are the target of recalls.
Four committees filed papers Tuesday with the Government Accountability Board to launch recall efforts against Senate Republicans.
The Senators targeted are Pam Galloway of Wausau, Van Wanggaard of Racine, Terry Moulton of Chippewa Falls, and Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau.
In the next 60 days, the committees will need to collect 16,742 valid signatures to recall Fitzgerald, 15,647 for Galloway, 14,353 for Wanggaard, and 14,958 to recall Moulton. The signatures must come from within the lawmakers’ districts.
The effort comes just months after recall elections were held against nine members of the state Senate. Those targeted this time around were not eligible for recall then because they had not yet served a year of their current term in office.
