The Center for Media Democracy contacted Governor Scott Walker and the four candidates who have filed to run in the recall election against him. We asked them all to comment on the influence of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) on the state of Wisconsin and what they might do about it as governor.
Three Democrats and one Independent have announced that they are running against Governor Walker; a primary is likely May 8. There is speculation that other candidates may still announce their intentions to run. The general election is expected to be June 5.

A year ago, Republicans held a 19-14 majority in the Senate, but that narrowed to 17-16 in August after Democrats ousted two GOP incumbents in recall elections. Republicans lose majority of that house with Galloway's departure." Read More Here | Galloway retires from state Senate
