About 540,200 signatures are needed to trigger a recall election of Gov. Scott Walker. Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk is the only Democrat who has announced candidacy.

After officially announcing she will run in a recall, Falk begins canvassing WI

Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk officially announced her intent to run for governor in the event of a recall election of Republican Governor Scott Walker in Milwaukee Tuesday.

Falk's announcement makes her the only Democrat to have announced candidacy.

From Milwaukee, she began a two-day tour of Wisconsin, with stops in Wausau, Green Bay, Eau Claire and La Crosse.

Roughly 540,200 signatures, or one quarter of the number of votes received by Walker in the 2010 gubernatorial election, are needed to trigger a recall election.

Recall organizers submitted an estimated one million Walker recall signatures to the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board on Jan. 17. State election officials are currently reviewing the submitted petition pages.

The board was recently awarded an additional 30 days to process recall petitions, giving it until March 19.
