In Wisconsin, you have made a historic stand.
You stood up with the notion that one person could make a difference. You stood up for the unions that helped create the middle class. You stood up against the cynical notion that the big money polluting our democracy today must always win.
You stood up One Million Strong to recall Scott Walker.
Right now, volunteers from counties all across Wisconsin are turning in more than 1.9 million signatures to recall Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch and their right-wing cronies in the state legislature.
Make history with the more than one million Wisconsinites who are fighting to make a stand for working, middle-class families by making a donation of $5 or more right now.
Scott Walker has not listened and has made a virtue of not listening to the people of Wisconsin and today you have made him listen.
This is a historic moment. By helping us gather more than a million signatures over the course of the last two months, you've joined the most-participated-in recall effort in American history.
But Scott Walker and his Koch-backed friends said you would fail. Walker himself belittled you. He said our people-powered movement was nothing more than a "small minority."
You faced intimidation. You stood up to name-calling, to foul behavior, to threats of violence.
You stood in the cold, you worked through a holiday season, you gave of your time, you gave of your passion for truth and fairness and for Wisconsin.
You persevered. You won. You made history.
Stand with the more than one million Wisconsinites who are taking the fight to Scott Walker and the extreme right-wing base of the Republican Party.
Make a donation of $5 or more before our critical fundraising deadline at midnight tonight.
Every single dollar you donate will go directly towards growing our One Million Strong people-powered campaign to defeat Scott Walker and put government back in the hands of the people, not the corporations.
Now let's win this thing!
Chair, Democratic Party of Wisconsin
