Wisconsin Republican State Senator Dan Kapanke is one of eight Republicans targeted for recall because of his support for Governor Scott Walker’s anti-union legislation.
It was reported yesterday that the movement to remove the eight senators eligible for recall had collected the signatures necessary for a recall election on Kapanke.
There is a long way to go to get petition signatures sufficient to initiate recalls on the remaining seven. Given the reality of challenges to the petitions, legal maneuvering may stall the recalls until the next round of regular elections.
Still, the petition drives may keep progressive activism alive and the nation focused on the GOP attack on unions and be a significant factor in the next round of general elections.
The current petition drive is being fueled by the following TV commercial.
