Barrett leads Democrats in recall primary


Wisconsin voters are filing into polling stations to decide which Democrat will get to take on the state's polarizing first-term Republican governor in a rare recall election next month.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk are two of four Democrats on Tuesday's ballot seeking to challenge Gov. Scott Walker in the June 5 general election.

Walker and several other Republican elected officials are facing recall elections for pushing through a law last year that stripped most unionized public workers of collective bargaining rights.

Other Democrats on the ballot are Secretary of State Doug La Follette and state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout. Gladys Huber is a Republican running as a Democrat.
