Today at the Capitol Square here in Madison Wisconsin. Photos by Meade. There were 25,000 to 30,000 people there today, according to news reports. These stills don't show that, but hang on, we've got video coming soon.
ADDED: More on the rally here:
Former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold signed a petition as he helped kick off the rally...
Feingold, the longtime Democratic senator who was defeated in November by Republican Ron Johnson, encouraged volunteers to counteract two pieces of misinformation that he said have been circulated by the movement's critics: that recalls are only allowed in cases of criminal conduct or malfeasance and that the recall movement consists of out-of-state activists.
"Our law says you can do recalls if you simply attack the people of Wisconsin," as Walker has done, Feingold said.
He also praised the recall movement as "all grassroots and all Badger."
Recent polling has identified Feingold as the only Democrat running ahead of Walker in a possible recall election
But despite shouts of "Governor Feingold!" and "Run, Russ, run!" from the volunteers, Feingold reiterated that he won't run against Walker if the signature drive is successful.
"I want there to be a new governor," Feingold told reporters outside the theater. "There will be a new governor in a few months, but it won't be me."
