MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin Democrats are holding their annual meeting this weekend in Milwaukee, and with recall elections for six Republican state senators all but certain, they're starting to focus on the person they consider their biggest foe -- Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
Democrats say their chances of ousting the Republican senators are good, and they hope any successes this summer will carry over into January. That's when Walker will have been in office long enough to be eligible for recall.
Mike Tate is the chair of the state party. He says Walker must be stopped, and Wisconsin Democrats will be the ones to stop him.
Democrats started the recall efforts after Walker proposed eliminating most of public employees' collective bargaining rights. That legislation is now tied up in the courts.
