More than 24,000 signatures are being submitted to force a recall election of Republican state Sen. Van Wanggaard of Racine.
Recall organizers are turning in the signatures Tuesday. They said there's no exact number yet because they're still counting.
Organizers need at least 15,353 valid signatures to trigger an election. They said their current count represents 156 percent of the required signatures.
The Government Accountability Board will review signatures to recall Wanggaard, three other Republican senators, Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.
Wanggaard told reporters Tuesday he has worked to balance the state budget without layoffs and a recall election could cost local governments in his district hundreds of thousands of dollars.
