WSJ: Organizers working to oust Gov. Scott Walker say they already have gathered more than half of the signatures they would need to force the new Republican governor into a recall election. United Wisconsin announced on Monday that more than 300,000 signatures have been gathered during the first 12 days of the recall effort, which was officially launched on Nov. 15. Organizers would need to gather 540,208 valid signatures by Jan. 17 to get the recall on the ballot next year.Here's Ed Schultz with Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairman Mike Tate. Love the passionate delivery of facts:
People have signed the recall petitions at the rate of about 1,040 per hour, according to United Wisconsin. The group says signatures have been collected from people in all 72 counties in Wisconsin, including:
