Due to John Nygren’s inability to collect enough valid signatures to be on the ballot, our first general election is on July 19th. This is the real deal. No fake Democrats, no primary–and one of our ‘Fab 14′ needs your help. Senator Dave Hansen has spent his career in public service standing up for the working families of northeastern Wisconsin, and now he needs your help to get out the vote.
The slate is set, and the math is simple: In six weeks we can retake the majority in the Wisconsin State Senate by picking up three seats in July's recall elections - and recent polling shows we can do just that.
It's not too late to register as a guest for the 2011 convention! This year's convention is the single best place to meet with Democrats before the critically important first set of recall elections July 12.
Below is a schedule of statewide rally events through this weekend. Check back often, we'll be updating regularly.
Less than a month ago, grassroots organizers turned in papers to recall the Republican 8 in the Senate who stood with Scott Walker as he pushed his partisan power grab that stripped thousands of Wisconsinites of the right to collective bargaining.
Want to help Recall the Republican 8? Want to stand up for worker’s rights and stop Governor Walker’s extreme agenda? Want to meet like-minded folks committed to fight for what’s right and move Wisconsin forward? Then it’s time for a road trip!
Here is some information on a great opportunity to get out and help with the grassroots efforts to Recall the Republican 8.
What we witnessed from the Senate Republicans last night was truly heinous. Seven decades of labor peace annihilated in less than five minutes, all to cement Scott Walker's divisive political overreach that has nothing to do with fixing Wisconsin's fiscal problems and everything to do with power-grabbing at the expense of working Wisconsin families. Today the Assembly will take up the so-called "budget repair" bill, stripped of fiscal provisions, that denies hard-working teachers, nurses and corrections workers the right to bargain collectively.
Citizens from around the state have taken the first steps by filing recall papers against key Republican Senators who stood with Scott Walker and pushed his partisan power grab that will strip thousands of middle class teachers, nurses, librarians and other workers of their right to collective bargaining. And we have now learned that their disastrous budget that will cut hundreds of millions from our schools and universities.
