Walker faces recall vote

Posted:

(CNN)--An election recall has officially been ordered against Republican governor Scott Walker.

Wisconsin's Government Accountability Board voted five-to-zero today (Friday) to order the recall.

That's after more than 900-thousand signatures on petitions were collected to force a vote.

Walker was targeted after he pushed through a law last year ending collective bargaining for most state workers.

If a Democratic primary is necessary, it will be held May 8th.

The actual recall vote will then be held on June 5th.
