This is a Waukesha-based political action committee registered to make independent expenditures on behalf of Republican Governor Scott Walker, who faced a June 5 recall election against Democratic candidate Tom Barrett. Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and four GOP Senate seats were targeted for recall after passage of the governor's 2011 plan to restrict public employee collective bargaining rights.

It was sponsored by businessman and Republican politician Mark Neumann. Walker's opponent in the Republican primary for governor in 2010, Neumann represented Wisconsin in the the U.S. House of Representatives from 1995 to 1999. He placed third in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate in August 2012.
