The nation’s eyes will likely be focused on recall challenges today to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Lt. Governor, Rebecca Kleefisch, and four Republican state senators in what amounts to their first test at the ballot box.
Today is Primary Election Day in Wisconsin and voters will have a choice to make for the future of the state.
Will they choose a government of the people by the people or a government of corrupt, union lapdogs? That is the choice facing Wisconsin voters. Today's vote results will tell us which direction the people of Wisconsin want to take the State.
Four Democrat gubernatorial candidates are competing to challenge Walker: Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett; former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk; Sen. Kathleen Vinehout of Alma; and Secretary of State Doug LaFollette. Republican activist Gladys Huber is running as a fake candidate on the Democrat ballot. Then there’ Arthur Kohl-Riggs, a Capitol protester who is running as a "Lincoln Republican" and will square off against Walker on the Republican line.
Tuesday’ election will determine Governor Walker's opponent in the June 5 election.
If Walker loses, he would be only the third U.S. governor removed from office in a recall election.
