Wisconsin's Republican governor Scott Walker -- he is in for a new fight this time it's for his job.
Opponents of the governor submitting recall petitions today you might remember that.
But he made national headlines last year when Wisconsin challenge some of the unions in Wisconsin Mike Tobin that are frozen Madison this morning -- -- -- anticipate getting enough.
Signatures for this recall petition.
More than enough -- some 540000.
Signatures are required to get governor Scott Walker on the ballot and if you want estimate by weight I've heard an estimate of about a ton of signatures will arrive here the government accountability board.
Somewhere upwards of 800000.
Signatures just -- governor Scott Walker back on the ballot.
And that will allow for a lot of the signatures to be invalidated and still have enough to force another election in the gubernatorial race here.
On top of that you have a lot of the other Republicans -- lieutenant governor Rebecca -- -- And for -- Republican state senators are all operating under the idea that enough signatures will be turned in enough signatures will be validated and they'll all be forced back on the ballot when would he have an opponent when would Wisconsin go to the polls to vote on this.
Well you know the statutes in terms of recall elections were never really designed to handle this kind of volume to the government accountability board.
Is asking for more time about ninety days to validate all of the signatures now on top of that you have to anticipate that there will be legal challenges because there's so much emotion in this battle.
So you probably looking at an election recall election in the middle of summer and what's interesting about that as it pushes it just months away from the scheduled November election so the only thing certain out here bill is a lot of voter fatigue.
And a lot of national headlines going back it was -- along the way Mike thank you I'm sure you'll take it right -- -- thank you Mike Tobin and maps.
