Barrett Will Challenge Walker in Recall Election

Despite millions of dollars spent by labor groups to defeat him, Tom Barrett (D) won an easy victory in the Democratic primary to face off against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) in a historic June 5th recall election, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

"Even as Barrett was campaigning to the primary win Tuesday, Walker was barnstorming the state, showing the fight he will bring to what is expected to be a tight, brutal month of campaigning for one of the most important elections to state office in Wisconsin history. A poll last week showed Walker and Barrett in a dead heat."
