Wisconsin Democrats on Fundraising Tear

The Wisconsin Democratic Party raised $1.4 million in the last two months -- about $250,000 more than the party did in all of last year, Milwaukee Public Radio reports.

"The Democrats have been fundraising aggressively to support efforts to recall eight Republican state senators who voted for GOP Gov. Scott Walker's budget repair law, which takes away most collective bargaining rights for most public workers."

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Walker's (R) administration "no longer is collecting dues on behalf of state unions" and "is charging employees more for their pensions and health care, even though nonpartisan legislative attorneys say the changes are not yet law."

The law was published last week despite a judge's restraining order.
