MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin judge has signed off an agreement that would make May 8 or June 5 the dates for recall elections against Gov. Scott Walker and five other Republicans.
Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess gave the agreement an official OK Wednesday. The tentative deal was reached a day earlier by lawyers for the state elections board, recall committees and recall targets.
Under the deal, any required primaries would be held May 8 with a general election four weeks later, on June 5. Otherwise a primary election would have been May 1 and the general election May 29, near the Memorial Day holiday.
Four Republican state senators face recall elections. It appears nearly certain that Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, will also stand for recall.
