Quick hit, pending updates from Kay or other posters more knowledgeable about the primary situation, but looks like we’ll be highlighting another GOTV / ActBlue drive:
Scott Walker, the embattled first-term Republican governor of Wisconsin, will face a recall election on June 5, the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board (GAB) ruled Friday. Walker’s Lieutenant Governor, Rebecca Kleefisch, will also face a recall.
The board voted 5-0 in favor of a holding a recall election after finding that the recall ballots for both candidates garnered a sufficient number of valid signatures to proceed.
More than 900,900 valid signatures were collected in a petition to recall Walker, and more than 800,000 valid signatures were collected in a petition to recall Kleefisch. Only 540,208 signatures were required…
Democratic primaries will take place on May 8.
So far, there are four Democrats in the running: Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, who has already secured the endorsements of a number of labor groups, elected officials, and liberal organizations, as well as Secretary of State Doug La Follette, state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who ran an unsuccessful bid against Walker in 2010.
Any Wisconsinites (Badgers?) want to tell us who we should be supporting?
