GOP's fake Democrats for recall primaries named

  • Updated

The state GOP has lined up six fake Democrats to run in upcoming recall elections targeting Gov. Scott Walker and five other Republicans.

GOP spokesman Ben Sparks says Gladys Huber will run for governor; Isaac Weix will run for lieutenant governor; and Gary Ellerman, Tamra Varebrook, James Engel and James Buckley will run in four state Senate recalls.

The elections are scheduled for May 8 and June 5. If primaries are needed they'll be held May 8.

Sparks says running what he called "recall protest candidates" guarantees a clear primary date and ensures no Republicans will face a general election that day, when Democrats likely will turn out in huge numbers to select a gubernatorial challenger.

He says the party doesn't plan to spend any money on their campaigns.
