MADISON (WKOW) -- A ninth state senator is in line for a possible recall election.

Organizers turned in at least 26,000 signatures pushing for the recall of Republican Sen. Robert Cowles of Green Bay.

Cowles joins five Republican senators and three Democratic senators being targeted for removal.  The senators are being targeted for their support or opposition to Gov. Scott Walker's plan to strip most public employees of collective bargaining rights.

Petitions for three more senators, two Republican and one Democrat, are due next week.
