Recall Elections Ordered in Wisconsin

Wisconsin elections officials ordered a set of historic recall elections, making Gov. Scott Walker (R) the third governor in the nation to face a recall and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch (R) the first lieutenant governor to face one, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Recall elections for four Republican state senators were also ordered.

Primaries will be held May 8 and general elections June 5. For races that do not require primaries, the general elections will be May 8.

Just two other governors have faced recall elections.  Both were defeated.
