Milwaukee - On Monday, Recall Scott Walker campaign organizers and volunteers have set a third record for gathering more than 700,000 petition signatures, since last Saturday. Organizers could very well break a fourth record by the January 17, dateline, when organizers will officially announce the grand total of signatures collected throughout Wisconsin.
Close sources to the recall drive have affirmed that the recall Walker campaign has surpassed the 700,000 signature mark. Volunteers for the recall Walker effort are making their final push to get signatures within the following eight days remaining to legally collect signatures.
They were expecting to collect 720,277 recall petition signatures before the dateline, but most likely will also surpass that total.
In mid December, Mike Tate, Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin and United Wisconsin confirmed that statewide volunteers had collected 507,533 recall Scott Walker petition signatures. Tate said, the signatures were collected in just 28-days throughout 72 counties in the state.
A minimum of the required 540,208 signatures were needed to force a recall election against Republican Governor Scott Walker before the dateline expired.
The Democratic Party of Wisconsin and United Wisconsin have confirmed that statewide volunteers had collected the following totals, since November 15th.

  • On November 28, 2011, 300,000 signatures were reported gathered.
  • On December 15, 2011, 507,533 signatures were reported gathered.
