FOND DU LAC, Wis. (WTAQ) - State officials will get the paperwork Thursday for a second Wisconsin Senate recall election.
The State Democratic Party said petitions will be filed with the Government Accountability Board to hold a recall election against Republican Randy Hopper of Fond du Lac.
Local organizers were announcing the move at rallies Thursday in Waupun, Oshkosh, and Fond du Lac.
The organizers said they plan to file over 30,000 signatures – about twice the number of valid signatures needed to call the election. Petitions have also been filed for a recall vote against Senate Republican Dan Kapanke of La Crosse.
Eight Republicans are being targeted for their support of the bill which limits collective bargaining for public employee unions. Eight Democratic senators are being targeted for being absent from Madison for 3 weeks in a failed attempt to block a vote on the measure – which is now being held up in the courts.
