Michael Brown, head of United Wisconsin, the group set on recalling Gov. Scott Walker said Sunday that he's confident they will gather the more than 540,000 signatures needed to force the governor into an early election.
Even if successful, efforts to unseat Walker will face a mountain of cash. The Green Bay Press-Gazette reported Monday on an exception in state campaign finance laws for recall elections. Donors can give the governor an unlimited amount of money from the time the recall election starts until the state orders an election.
Translation? The governor's campaign fund will be loaded for a recall election.
And, Democrats can rule out one possible candidate for Walker's seat. Russ Feingold is saying he won't run against the incumbent.
