Why small cities, rural areas back the recall of Scott Walker
Cap Times editorial | Posted: Wednesday, November 30, 2011 4:45 am
The petition drive to recall and remove Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has surpassed all expectations, collecting more than 300,000 signatures in less than two weeks.
The truly remarkably thing about the total is not, however, that it is so large.
What’s truly remarkable is where the signatures are coming from: Rural and small-town Wisconsin communities are contributing disproportionately high numbers of signatures.
No one expected the recall drive would move so quickly.
