Last year, hundreds of thousands of teachers, nurses and regular, hard-working Americans took to the streets of Wisconsin to demand an end to right-wing Gov. Scott Walker‘s War on Working Families.
Wisconsin Democrats heard them loud and clear. All 14 State Senate Democrats left the state to stop the Republican legislature from jamming through a bill to smash unions and middle class families.
Then, a coalition of working people came together over the spring and summer to beat two State Senate Republicans in recall elections in deep red districts for their votes to kill unions. It was a huge blow to Wisconsin Republicans.
Now, it’s time to finish the job.
Over one million Wisconsinites signed on to recall Scott Walker and four more Republican State Senators for pushing their outrageous right-wing agenda on Wisconsin — smashing unions, defunding Planned Parenthood, pushing a harsh new voter ID law that hurts the poor and elderly, and so much more. These are just some of the things at stake. That’s why we absolutely must win these recall elections.
Please contribute $4 right now to recall Scott Walker and his four cronies and stop their right-wing agenda once and for all.
We’ve seen Republicans push these sorts of extreme right-wing agendas at the state level all across the country — Ohio, New Hampshire, Florida, Montana, and a dozen other states.
Wisconsin is our first chance to fight back. These recall elections are happening this summer — not as part of the November elections.
A big win here this summer will be a shot in the arm to Democrats across the country. The progressive base will be fired up and we can keep the momentum going into November, reelecting President Obama, electing bold progressives like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren to the Senate, and taking back the House from John Boehner and the Tea Partiers.
We have a chance to stop these right-wingers in Wisconsin right here, right now — and to give progressives the momentum they need to win big in November.
But to win big, we must support the folks working on the ground in Wisconsin right now. Please contribute $4 to the Wisconsin Democratic Party right now.
Thank you for everything you do.
