With just one week to go until the recall elections in Wisconsin we’ve already seen evidence of electoral fraud and a flood of money from the Koch brothers. If Democrats hope to flip the Senate and show Gov. Scott Walker and his administration that a legislative agenda designed to dismantle and sell off the very institutions that make Wisconsin great will go no further then they are going to have to get out and vote.
As part of that effort EMILY’s List is enlisting support from members and volunteers and asking them help the get out the vote efforts because what’s going on in Wisconsin is going on everywhere.
The stakes are high in Wisconsin. The attack on public employee unions, public education and health care hurt Wisconsin women and families the hardest. Wisconsin, in many ways, is a microcosm of the war waged in Washington by Rep. John Boehner and Sen. Mitch McConnell. But in a week, Wisconsin has the chance to elect five pro-choice women in response and to send a clear signal that women have had enough.
