MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- About 930,000 signatures were submitted on petitions seeking the recall of Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
That is what the head of the Wisconsin state elections board reported Monday.
It marks the first time since the petitions were turned in back in January that an official number of signatures has been made public. Recall organizers said at the time they had about 1 million signatures.
Only 540,208 need to be valid in order for the recall to move forward.
Kennedy says staff at the Government Accountability Board have only struck 26,000 signatures. Walker did not challenge any signatures, making it a near certainty that a recall election will be held.
The earliest any primary will be is early May.
