Over the past few weeks (with the exception of our “lost week”) I’ve asked you all to help the efforts to recall the “Republican 8” – the eight Republican State Senators who voted in lockstep with the wishes of their party leadership to eviscerate the ability of public employees to collectively bargain while severely weakening public employee unions. I had set an original goal to raise $500 in support of the efforts to recall the Republican 8, but you all blew past that goal, and you also blew past my updated goal to raise $1,000. The efforts to recall the Republican 8 are in full swing, and they still need your support, because there’s no doubt Republicans will fight tooth and nail to preserve their majority in the State Senate, including spending whatever it takes to hold onto the seats they currently hold.
There’s no denying that recalling the Republican 8 will be a daunting task, but that’s where you come in: in order to keep efforts to recall the Republican 8 moving in the right direction, those efforts need not only volunteers, but also funding, and so I’m asking you to make a donation to help those efforts. Thus far you all have donated $1,301 to the efforts to recall the Republican 8, but I’d like to raise $2,000 to help efforts to recall the Republican 8. Please consider making a donation so that we can recall at least three of the Republican 8 and turn the Wisconsin State Senate blue once again.
