WEB EXTRA: Special Election Results
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) — Dozens of DFL volunteers from Minnesota are canvassing in Eau Claire Tuesday to help Wisconsin Democrats get out the vote in the nationally-watched recall election.
Fifth District Congressman Keith Ellison and DFL Party chairman Ken Martin rallied the volunteers before they boarded a bus for Wisconsin.
Martin told the group that it’s a critical election for Wisconsin and the country as a whole. He says the DFL stands in solidarity to help elect a leader who will help build a stronger middle class in Wisconsin — Tom Barrett.
Republican Gov. Scott Walker faces a rematch with the Milwaukee mayor, whom he beat in 2010 by 5 percentage points, as he tries to become the first U.S. governor to successfully fend off a recall.
