Walker Recall Signature Update
Organizers of the effort to recall Republican Gov. Scott Walker from office say they have collected 300,000 signatures, more than half of what is needed to force an election.
The United Wisconsin coalition reported the totals to the Associated Press on Monday, just 12 days into the recall effort. They need 540,208 by Jan. 17 to force a recall election sometime in 2012.
United Wisconsin says signatures have been collected in all 72 counties in the state.
