Democratic supporters marched to the Capitol building Wednesday night to show their solidarity in support of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in the recall election against Gov. Scott Walker.
In 2002, when Democrats had to choose between Barrett, Kathleen Falk and Jim Doyle in a hotly contested primary, they cast 550,000 ballots. In Tuesday's primary, Democrats cast about 670,000 votes total.
Even if some weren't overjoyed with Tuesday's results, they are preparing to do all they can to unseat Walker in a recall election on June 5.
"(Falk) lost; we got beat. Tom Barrett won. We go to work for Tom Barrett today," said Donald Lowe, a recall supporter.
With their candidate chosen, Walker's opponents begin a march forward, and nobody at the rally was forgetting how much work there is to be done.
