Milwaukee - On Friday, thousands of volunteers hit the local streets for the Democrats in the last days before the June 5th Recall Scott Walker election. Vounteers for the Barrett and Mitchell ticket were giving out free campaign signs along the 900 block of S. Cesar E. Chavez Drive.
The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board (GAB) confirmed that more than 165,000 voting-age residents had cast their absentee ballots. This Friday is the last day to cast an in-person absentee ballot.
The GAB is expecting a 65% or 2.8M voter turned out next Tuesday.
On Friday, former President Bill Clinton (D) was in Milwaukee to generate support for Tom Barrett, the Democratic candidate for governor. Clinton told the crowd at Pere Marquette Park that he didn't support recall elections, but in this case to stop a disaster in Wisconsin, he did support a recall.
Republicans and the GOP have spent at least $1,600 to every dollar Democrats have spent in campaign ads. The GOP is trying to keep Walker as governor to serve out his term and ultimately make Wisconsin a Red state.
