Falk turns in 4,000 signatures

Former Dane County Exec Kathleen Falk was the first Dem guv recall candidate to turn in nomination papers today, filing 4,000 nomination with the GAB.

Falk said her campaign was “flooded with people sending nomination signatures from all across the state” over the past 10 days, which she said reflects the “big tent” of interests that support her candidacy in the recall election against Gov. Scott Walker.

“I’ve earned the endorsement of every single organization that has endorsed against Scott Walker,” Falk said. “I’m very inspired and honored by that.”

To get on the ballot for the recall, guv candidates must submit at least 2,000 valid signatures and no more than 4,000 by 5 p.m. today.

Recently, some Republicans have suggested they would rather face Falk than Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in the general election and would vote for Falk in the open Democratic primary. However, Falk said polls show that she is even with Barrett and Walker and that she is confident she can win over the remaining undecided voters, many of whom are women, in the coming weeks.

“They’re not worried I’m the weaker one. They’re worried I’m the stronger one,” Falk said of the GOP.
