This is it. This is history. After months of historic division, job loss, criminal corruption and partisan power grabs, Tom Barrett offers Wisconsin a new start.
Our grassroots, people-powered movement has the strength and unity required now with less than four weeks to win an historic election against the amassed wealth and power of the Scott Walker corporate political machine.
But Walker's sleazy money can't vote, and it's clear that the people of Wisconsin will take the opportunity with a leader like Tom Barrett to give Wisconsin a new start at healing our great state and beginning the long job of repairing the devastation wrought by 17 months of irresponsible rule.
We will defeat Scott Walker because you know what is at stake. In just a year, Scott Walker has led an unprecedented assault on not just the rights of Wisconsin workers, but also our shared values and proud Wisconsin institutions.
We want this page, which will be updated frequently, to serve as a resource for you, with answers to your questions, and ways you can help, as well as provide a rationale for why we are taking this extraordinary step to hold Scott Walker accountable.
Scott Walker knows that working, middle-class families have rejected his extreme agenda, but he has proven time and again that he will say or do anything to hold onto power for himself and the wealthy special interests that have lined his campaign coffers with unlimited contributions.
Enough is enough. On June 5, 2012 the people of Wisconsin will elect Tom Barrett and put an end to Scott Walker's ideological civil war.
