Republican Majority: A Thing Of The Past in Wisconsin

Thanks to the unrelenting pressure of activists like you, Scott Walker has now lost the Republican majority in the Wisconsin state senate.

This morning it was announced that state Sen. Pam Galloway, one of the four Republican state senators facing recall, will resign her seat. Since Democrats had already winnowed the Republican majority to 17-16 with their two recall victories last summer, this now makes the Wisconsin state senate a 16-16 tie.

The recall election against Galloway will still move forward, although her name will not appear on the ballot. Republicans will nominate a different candidate, while state Rep. Donna Seidel, who was already challenging Galloway in the recall election, will be the Democratic candidate.

If we act fast, we can give Seidel a big head start in this election, and make sure Scott Walker never has a Republican majority to work with again.

Please, chip in $6 to Donna Seidel on Act Blue.

Keep fighting,
