United Wisconsin and the Recall Walker Committee effort to oust
Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker
projecting that more than 270,000 signatures
have been collected, passing the halfway mark.

Milwaukee On Saturday, Recall Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) projections to collect petition signatures have surpassed all expectations to get more than the minimum required signatures per day needed by organizers to meet the amount of 540,000 mark by January 17. After the Black Friday signature petition drive throughout the state, recall organizers projected that most likely they have surpassed the halfway mark of the 270,000 signatures needed or will reach the halfway target total within days to force an election recall against Governor Walker.

Within the first week of the Walker recall, organizers and volunteers collected at least 105,000 to 107,000 petition signatures within four days of the initial start date (Nov. 15), exceeding all expectations.

The Committee to Recall Scott Walker and United Wisconsin were expected to collect the 9,000 minimum per day for 60 days, but have collected threefold of signatures per day and continue to gather the needed signatures to force a recall election.


The half-way mark in only two weeks!

Hey- it's a start.

Let's shoot for 700,000 by Christmas. Ho-ho-ho.
