Obey endorses Barrett in recall election


(WAOW) -- Former U.S. Representative Dave Obey said he's endorsing Tom Barrett in the race to recall Governor Scott Walker.

Obey, who is from Wausau, said the Milwaukee mayor has the right temperament to help unite a divided state. Barrett, Kathleen Falk and two other democrats are vying for the party's nomination to challenge Walker. Democrats want to oust the governor from office as payback for passing a law that stripped public workers of many of their union rights.
