Recall Effort

See also: Wisconsin Senate recall elections, 2011

Harsdorf was subject to an active recall effort as part of the 2011 Wisconsin protests. On March 2, 2011, the "Committee to Recall Harsdorf" officially registered with the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board.

On April 19, 2011, Harsdorf recall organizers filed an estimated 23,000 signatures with the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board. 15,744 valid signatures are required to force a recall election.

On May 3, 2011, teacher and educators' union official Shelly Moore announced she would run against Harsdorf in a possible recall election.

In late May 2011, the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board verified petitions against Harsdorf, overruling her challenges. The date for the recall election was set for August 9, 2011.

Harsdorf easily defeated the Democratic challenger, Shelly Moore, fifty-eight percent to forty-two percent in the recall election - greater than her margin of victory in the previous election.

Famous quotes containing the words effort and/or recall:

    The effort to understand the universe is one of the very few things that lifts human life a little above the level of farce, and gives it some of the grace of tragedy.
    Steven Weinberg (b. 1933)

    That doctrine [of peace at any price] has done more mischief than any I can well recall that have been afloat in this country. It has occasioned more wars than any of the most ruthless conquerors. It has disturbed and nearly destroyed that political equilibrium so necessary to the liberties and the welfare of the world.
    Benjamin Disraeli (1804–1881)
