RECALLS: WISCONSIN'S HOT POLITICS
Winter weather could not stop the fevered gathering of recall signatures. Recalls divide us politically and philosophically.Â Â Are they a valuable extension of democracy?Â A protection from extremism?Â Or do they waste time and money, a desperate tool of sore losers?
With host RAUL VASQUEZ and with guests in order of appearance - MIKE McCABE,Â Executive Director, Wisconsin Democracy Campaign; JULIA AZARI, PhD, Political Scientist, Marquette University; and JAMES BURKEE, PhD, Associate Professor of American and Wisconsin History, Concordia University Wisconsin.
