GAB wants recall elections on May 15, June 12

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board has recommended a primary for Gov. Scott Walker's recall election on May 15 with the general election on June 12.

The announcement was made Friday GAB director Kevin Kennedy.

The dates are two weeks later than is required now and any extension would need approval by a judge.

Democrats are opposing that timeline. Democratic attorney Jeremy Levinson calls the requested extension "totally unreasonable and unnecessary." Levinson says he will fight against the additional time in court.

Kennedy says there is no way the board can finish its review of the roughly 1.9 million signatures seeking the recall of Walker and five others any sooner than March 30.
