Democrat Clark defeats fake Democrat

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Democratic state Rep. Fred Clark has defeated fake Democratic candidate Rol Church in the Wisconsin state Senate race covering Baraboo and other communities north of Madison.

Moore had 67 percent of Tuesday's vote, with 92 percent of precincts reporting.

The 52-year-old Clark is serving in his second term in the Legislature. He will now take on incumbent Republican Sen. Luther Olsen of Ripon in the Aug. 9 recall election for the 14th Senate District.

Olsen was one of six Republicans targeted for a recall after he supported Gov. Scott Walker's divisive plan taking away nearly all collective bargaining rights from most public workers.

The state Republican Party orchestrated placing Church and five other Republicans on the ballot as Democrats to force the primaries, but they did not actively campaign.
