Kapanke Recall Election Coming
Its looking like there will be a recall election for Senator Dan Kapanke. Those who have been gathering signatures to force that recall election say they now have enough signatures. They plan to submit those today in Madison after a rally at La Crosse's city hall. They say they collected more than 20,000 signatures in about a month. Those signatures will need to be verified, then a recall election would be scheduled. It is not known who Kapanke would face in the election. Candidates have 10 days to collect enough signatures to get on the ballot. Some possible names mentioned include Tara Johnson who lost to Kapanke in the last Senate election, and current La Crosse state representative Jennifer Shilling. Neither have confirmed their intentions to run.
