Walker Not The Only Republican Facing Recall In Wisconsin

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011 at 1:00 pm

We reported earlier today that the process to recall republican Governor Scott Walker had begun, and now we are learning that Walker’s isn’t the only recall petition that has been filed in the state.

The Associated Press is reporting that there is a movement to recall three Republican Wisconsin state senators as well.  Petitions were filed electronically shortly after midnight Tuesday, the same time as paperwork was submitted to recall Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

All of the recall efforts are backed by the state Democratic Party.

The targeted senators were all elected in 2010 and defeated Democratic incumbents. They are Pam Galloway of Wausau, Terry Moulton of Chippewa Falls and Van Wanggaard of Racine.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says he also expects to be the target of a recall.
