Recall organizer to run against Senate Majority Leader

MADSION (WKOW) -- The woman behind the recall effort against Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) will run against him.

Lori Compas will announce her candidacy Tuesday, February 28 at the Jefferson Area Business Center, that's according to her website.

Compas, a Fort Atkinson resident and professional photographer, led the effort that gathered 20,600 recall signatures, but only needs 16,742 valid signatures to force a recall election. After Sen. Fitzgerald challenged many of the signatures earlier this month, election officials are now reviewing those challenges.

The Government Accountability Board has until March 19 to declare whether a recall election will be held.
