MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Opponents of Gov. Scott Walker's conservative agenda are focusing their efforts on recall efforts targeting six Republican state senators following a string of defeats.
Walker's budget passed the Republican-controlled Legislature on Thursday and his divisive collective bargaining proposal is set to take effect following a favorable Supreme Court ruling.
Wisconsin Democratic Party spokeswoman Gillian Morris says volunteers will be knocking on doors this weekend in the recall areas to educate voters. She says passage of the budget and affirmation of the union law has only empowered those working on recalls.
Republican Party spokeswoman Kati McCallum says the GOP has fulfilled its campaign promises of balancing the budget while creating jobs.
