GREEN BAY - A longtime Brown County politician says she will challenge State Sen. Rob Cowles, R-Allouez, in a possible recall election.
Nancy Nusbaum made the announcement today.
"I thought I was retired, and I thought I was in a supportive role helping other people, but I care as passionately about the things we have built here as anyone. I feel a very personal stake in a lot of it, and I just can't stand by and watch it be dismantled," said Nusbaum.
Nusbaum, a Democrat, is a former Brown County Executive. She lost a primary election in 2006 for the U.S. House of Representatives.
Meanwhile, Cowles released the following statement Monday:
"As the summer heats up, unfortunately, I expect more negative attack ads from my opponents. I, however, remain focused on policies that will help create jobs, and on balancing the state budget without raising taxes."
A recall petition has been filed against Cowles over his vote in favor of Gov. Scott Walker's controversial bill curtailing public employees' collective bargaining rights. The Government Accountability Board, which oversees state elections, has not certified the petitions against Cowles or any of the other eight state senators targeted.
