Decision delay could push back recall elections

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Recall elections against several state senators could be pushed back.

The Government Accountability Board delayed a final decision on recall petitions against Democratic state Senators Dave Hansen, Jim Holperin and Robert Wirch.

A GAB spokesman says the board needs more time to look over challenges to the petitions.

Officials planned to have recall elections on July 12, but the delay and possible challenges put the date in doubt.

The board will still review challenges to recall petitions for three GOP senators at its meeting Tuesday.
