Two Wisconsin Republican Senators Possibly Recalled

Following on the heels of a major electoral accomplishment for worker's rights supporters, John Nichols hinted on MSNBC's The Ed Show that the Wisconsin Democrats may be planning to announce the successful collection of signatures to recall a second Republican Senator Thursday.

The 8 Republican Senators are being recalled for voting to strip collective bargaining rights from Wisconsin workers. Senator Dan Kapanke is the first to face a recall election with Senators Hopper, Darling and Cowles most likely close behind. Two senators facing a recall election with just over half the allotted time to get signatures is quite amazing and shows just how strongly Wisconsin feels about workers' rights.

Update: (9:56pm) The Journal Sentinel thinks the second recalled Senator is Randy Hopper.
