A group that sought to force a recall of Michigan’s Republican Gov. Rick Snyder said Thursday it’s calling it quits, citing a lack of support and the chilly political climate in the wake of the Wisconsin vote.
Michigan Rising, an independent group that had set a goal of gathering 1 million signatures on petitions to force a recall vote on Mr. Snyder, said Thursday it will stop its recall campaign immediately. The organization’s leaders said in a web post that as of June 4 it had collected only 2,079 names on 655 petitions, well short of a target of 200,000 signatures by June 1.
“It has become abundantly clear that Michigan Rising was not going accomplish its goal of recalling Governor Snyder,” Michigan Rising’s communications director Bruce Fealk said in a statement. “The results in Wisconsin crystallized how difficult a task it is to recall a sitting governor, even when the unions and the Democratic Party play a significant role in the effort.”
Today I brought my drum in studio (one of my kid’s snare drums from their drum kit) to celebrate Wisconsin’s historic victory. Granted, we were all a little delirious from having so little sleep the night before, but it was worth it. THIS is what democracy* looks like.
Caller Joe rang in and cracked us all up with his hysterical gloating.
Below is the full list of the show’s special edition Victory Lap Bumper Trax:
Wisconsin is ground zero in the battle for liberty and freedom, especially economic freedom. Gov. Scott Walker’s reforms are working, and big labor is mad. They’re attempting to recall Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and targeting the latter in the way that progressives do best: by preaching women’s equality while sexually demeaning conservative women. That, my friends, is the real War On Women.
