Wisconsin Governor Walker to face recall vote June 5

Fri Mar 30, 2012 11:24am EDT

MILWAUKEE (Reuters) - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will face a recall election on June 5 over a new law he championed that strips public sector unions of most power, becoming the first governor to face a no-confidence vote in nearly a decade.

The five-member Wisconsin Government Accountability Board, which manages elections, voted unanimously on Friday to certify more than 900,000 signatures calling for Walker's ouster, formally setting in motion the recall election.

A Democratic primary will be held on May 8 to choose Walker's opponent in the recall vote. The Democrat most likely to face Walker is Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in a rematch of the 2010 election, narrowly won by Walker, although Barrett has not yet formally entered the race.
