Voters Statewide Voice Opposition to Extreme Budget in Recall Districts

All over Wisconsin, constituents rally against devastating budget being rammed through in “extraordinary session” in Madison

While much of the attention surrounding opposition to the devastating budget proposal being debated in the legislature has naturally been focused on protests here in Madison, widespread grassroots opposition is happening all over the state – especially in the districts of state Senators facing recall for their blind support of Scott Walker’s extreme agenda.

From La Crosse to Fond du Lac to Baraboo to Green Bay, citizens all over Wisconsin are making their voices heard in their local communities against a budget that threatens to irreversibly damage our state and runs counter to Wisconsin values. Those voices are growing especially loud in districts where state Senators are facing recall elections, and are beginning to get substantial media coverage. Here’s a sampling of the coverage statewide of yesterday’s events:
