WISCONSIN - For the first time in three weeks, TODAY'S TMJ4 was able to interview a Senate Democrat who was actually in Wisconsin at the time.

"I'm really excited to be home," says Senator Lena Taylor.

Taylor is among the Democrats who have come back to Wisconsin after being out of state for three weeks trying to slow down the legislative process on Governor Walker's budget repair bill. 

"I think people are geared up and ready to speak to the recalls and speak to January 2012."

All 14 Senate Democrats will be in Madison on Saturday for a rally.

Senator Chris Larson says "We'll be marching to the Capitol and then we'll be speaking to thank the protestors."

Larson did not rule out using the tactic of fleeing the state to slow down legislation in the future - however other senators think that particular tactic should not be used often.
