MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Democrats oppose a timeline that would put any primary for Gov. Scott Walker's recall election on May 15 with the general election on June 12.
Those dates were recommended Friday by the head of the state elections board. They are two weeks later than is required now and any extension would need approval by a judge.
Democratic attorney Jeremy Levinson calls the requested extension "totally unreasonable and unnecessary." Levinson says he will fight against the additional time in court.
Representatives of Walker's campaign and the Republican Party did not immediately return requests for comment.
Government Accountability Board director Kevin 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.
