This week, Republican lawmakers in Michigan and Wisconsin have called special sessions to curb authority of newly elected statewide Democrats who pose a threat to Republicans' accomplishments.
In 2011, Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill stripping collective bargaining rights from most public employees, sparking massive protests at the state Capitol. While most demonstrators eventually went away, a small group did not.
Opponents of Gov. Scott Walker will deliver a truckload of petitions to Wisconsin's elections board Tuesday in an effort to force a recall election. Thousands of volunteers spent the past two months collecting signatures. Talk of recalling the governor began after he stripped most public unions of collective bargaining rights.
Opponents of Republican Gov. Scott Walker have 60 days to collect 500,000 signatures to force the governor to face a recall election next spring. But getting those signatures in this sharply divided state may pose a bit of a challenge.
