WAUWATOSA - More than 1,000 recall supporters clogged a Wauwatosa intersection and took their message to the Governor's front door.
They made their protests at the corner of 68th and Bluemound -- a microcosm of where Wisconsin has been, and where the state may be going.
Walker supporters versus recall supporters. Walker's friends armed with signs, his opponents -- with recall petitions.
The march set off before sunset -- from a park six blocks from the Governor's home.
Capitol Police kept the signs and the band away from his front door, but consider the message -- sent.
The recall movement is motivated.
"I was up at midnight downloading the petitions so I could get copies made for my teaching staff to distribute to them," said recall supporter Maureen Seiden.
Walker supporters -- like Ardis Cerny of Pewaukee -- clustered close to the Governor's home.
Cerny told TODAY'S TMJ4, "You know what, we had an election and it was a fair election and he won it."
A rare sentiment on the first day of the recall movement, but friends of the governor are not worried.
Governor Walker's wife and kids still lives here in Wauwatosa -- where his children go to school.
