Wisconsin Democrats have gathered enough signatures to convene recall elections for three state GOP senators. Democrats need to take just three Republican seats to regain control of the chamber.

With the latest round of signatures, three GOP state senators — Luther Olsen, Dan Kapanke and Randy Hopper — now face recalls in the wake of their support for Gov. Scott Walker’s measure to roll back bargaining rights to state employees, The Washington Post reported.

Republicans are also collecting signatures to recall Democratic senators but have yet to make announcements on their efforts and the deadline is just a week away, the Post reported.

The Badger State has seen only four recall elections in its history, the Post reported. Wisconsin Democrats are now on the verge of doing it three times in a few months.
