Wisconsin voters on Tuesday tossed two Republican state senators out of office in recall elections, sending a message that they won't tolerate the politics of extremism. Although the recall elections fell short of the goal of turning over control of the State Senate, we’re not done yet – and we’re not going away. The grassroots nature of what’s happening across our state will lay a foundation for future elections, resulting in a stronger democracy that represents the voice of working families. We have made astonishing gains in an uphill battle!
