The next round of recall elections in Wisconsin begins with a primary on May 8th.
Democrats will choose candidates to run against four sitting Republican state senators and the state’s Republican governor, Scott Walker.
The recall vote is meant to be a referendum on the Governor Walker’s move to eliminate nearly all collective bargaining rights for the state’s public employees.
But the vote in Wisconsin has become a test run for the national elections in November, with pro and anti-union forces pouring millions of dollars and testing strategies in Wisconsin.
