Judge approves date for Walker recall election
Source: Raw Story
A Wisconsin judge has approved dates for an election to recall Gov. Scott Walker (R) and five other Republican state senators.
Under the agreement proposed by the Government Accountability Board and approved by Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess, the recall vote would be held on May 8. If primaries are necessary then those would be held on May 8 and the general election would be held on June 5.
Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk (D) has said that she will run against Walker. Other Democrats could run as well, triggering the May 8 primary.
Democrats in Wisconsin launched an effort to recall Walker and 13 other state senators after they pushed through a law last year that limited the union rights of some public employees.

2. I'd bet Walker or the Kochs put up a fake Democrat just to force a primary
I'd guess they want to drag things out as long as possible.
