This is a Shorewood, Wisconsin-based political action committee created to support Democratic candidates for statewide office in the legislature. It made its first independent expenditures on behalf of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett in a June 5, 2012 recall election aimed at removing Republican Governor Scott Walker because of his 2011 plan to restrict public employee collective bargaining rights. In addition to Walker, the lieutenant governor and four GOP Senate seats also were targeted for recall.
