Now, Kapanke has no choice but to know that the working families of Wisconsin will be heard.
As for the seven other Republicans who have joined with Walker, they will know soon what Kapanke knows, that when Wisconsin's working families speak, you should take care to listen.
Kapanke has 10 days after the filing to challenge signatures. If enough petitions are found to be valid, there will be an primary election six Tuesdays after that decision; four weeks that, there will be a general election.
It's noteworthy that Democrats beat Republicans to the draw here, as
their petition-gathering effort first.
