Politics To Really Heat Up Now
Democrats and union supporters will submit an estimated one and a half million recall signatures today. The state Government Accountability Board will then start reviewing the signatures, to see if there are enough to order recall elections against Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, and four G-O-P state senators. La Crosse County GOP Chair, Bill Feehan, said at a recent gathering that it's time for Republicans to step it up.
Meanwhile, Democrats say they're against the GAB's effort to hold all recall votes on the same day. State law requires those elections to be held six weeks after petitions are verified and petitions for the smaller Senate recalls are expected to be reviewed a lot quicker than the statewide petitions for governor.
