Early Voter Reaction In Recall Primary

Posted Tuesday, May 8, 2012 --- 10:25 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- One man who has cast his ballot for Scott Walker says the Wisconsin governor was "duly elected."

Seventy-seven year-old part-time plumbing and heating contractor Carl Schramm of Whitefish Bay says the recall election is "stupid" and "costs a lot of money."

But 41-year-old marketing consultant Amy Westrup of Whitefish Bay calls the chance to overturn the 2010 election result "the ultimate mulligan." She voted for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, one of four Democrats vying for the chance to unseat Walker in the general election on June 5.

The others are Kathleen Falk, Secretary of State Doug La Follette and state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout. Gladys Huber is a Republican running as a Democrat.

Walker faces token opposition in the GOP primary from Arthur Kohl-Riggs, a Walker opponent running as a Republican.

Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and three Republican state senators also face recall elections. There is an election in a fourth Senate district where the Republican incumbent resigned.
