Michigan: Recall Effort Is DroppedAssociated Press
A group seeking to recall Gov. Rick Snyder announced Thursday that it had ended the effort after Gov. Scott Walker’s victory in Wisconsin’s recall election. The group, Michigan Rising, said it would stop collecting signatures, noting that it was already short of its own goals. Instead, the group said it would focus on a long-term effort to form a progressive advocacy group and support current progressive legislators. “The results in Wisconsin crystallized how difficult a task it is to recall a sitting governor, even when the unions and the Democratic Party play a significant role in the effort,” a spokesman, Bruce Fealk, said.
