MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Democratic state representative will challenge a Republican state senator if a recall election is held this summer.
Rep. Sandy Pasch of Whitefish Bay filed papers with the Government Accountability Board Thursday to run against state Sen. Alberta Darling of River Hills. Pasch says she will run to fight against cuts to education supported by Darling and to reunite a divided state.
The Darling campaign says in a prepared statement that it looks forward to addressing what it calls Pasch's "failed policies" that have led to the state's budget deficit.
Six Republican and three Democratic senators are in line for recalls for their support or opposition to Gov. Scott Walker's bill that curtails collective bargaining rights for public employees.
