MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Democratic Party is standing by its plan to force a recall election against Republican Gov. Scott Walker despite losing four of six recalls targeting GOP state senators.

Party Chairman Mike Tate issued a statement Wednesday saying the Democrats' winning of two Senate recall elections shows how vulnerable Walker is to a recall effort.

Republicans held on to majority control in the Senate through their four wins on Tuesday.

Tate called Democratic gains historic and said they will continue to "restore balance and accountability to our state" with a recall of Walker in November 2012.

Democrats could attempt an earlier recall date, but Tate's memo indicates they will try to time it to take place at the same time as the presidential election next year.
