MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The recall battle for the Wisconsin Senate is about to begin.
Four Democrats will square off against four Republicans posing as Democrats in primaries on May 8. Three winners will face GOP incumbents Scott Fitzgerald, Van Wanggaard and Terry Moulton in a June 5 general election. The fourth winner will face state Republican state Rep. Jerry Petrowski for former Sen. Pam Galloway's open seat on June 5.
Democrats forced Fitzgerald, Wanggaard, Moulton and Galloway into recalls to punish them for supporting Gov. Scott Walker's law stripping most public workers of their union rights. Galloway resigned but the election to fill her seat continues.
The lead-up to the elections has been marked by court battles and Republicans' decision to run fake Democrats in the primaries, giving the incumbents an extra month to campaign.
