Dems to recall Gov. Walker early next year

Via Markos and Twitter, we get this great news from Greg Sargent and the Plum Line blog (my emphasis):

There’s a long way to go, and the goal seems like a very tough one to reach, but Wisconsin Democrats are set to go for it: They will announce at their annual convention later today that they intend to launch an effort to recall the ultimate target — Scott Walker himself.

Mike Tate, the chairman of the Wisconsin Democratic Party, will reveal the plan in a speech today [June 3] at the convention in Milwaukee, according to advance excerpts of the speech that were sent my way.

We will not stand down — and next year, we will recall Scott Walker from office,” Tate will tell the crowd, according to the excerpts. “We will begin to repair the damage done to this state and we will begin a new with a Democratic Governor who will fight for our children, who will fight for our families, our teachers and our firefighters. We will fight for the people — not the powerful.”

You can’t win if you don’t play, and play hard. We’ll have a Contribute link for that recall effort as it gets organized.

In the meantime, if you can, please contribute to the recall effort in the Wisconsin Senate by clicking below. Every bit helps and we’re more than two-thirds there. Thanks!

Update: A huge thank you to the folks who got us above $4200 in the “finance the Wisconsin Senate Recall” effort below!
