MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A potential recall election of a Democratic senator in northern Wisconsin will likely have a primary as another Republican has announced his candidacy for the state senate.
Lincoln County Board Chairman Robert Lussow says he'll run against Sen. Jim Holperin of Conover if election officials approve the recall petitions and hold an election.
That would likely mean a Republican primary between Lussow and tea party activist Kim Simac, who ran the recall drive against Holperin. Lussow says his experience in local government gives him an advantage.
Any primary election would likely be July 12 and the general election August 9.
Three Democrats and six GOP senators are in line for recall because of their opposition to, or support for a bill that curtails collective bargaining rights for most public employees.
