The Wisconsin Recall Election Calendar

The GAB's list of candidates running on the 19th is here. August 9: The six candidates that emerge from the Democratic primaries on July 12 will run against the GOP state senators. Democrats are most bullish about their chances in Districts 18 and 32, represented by Hopper and state Sen. Dan Kapanke. The least vulnerable Republican appears to be state Sen. Robert Cowles in District 2. Democrats are attempting to tie Rep. Paul Ryan, and his plan to revamp Medicare to some of the GOP candidates. Expect Democratic-aligned outside groups to double down on this theme as they go up on television and radio. Overall, expect outside groups on both sides to spend heavily on advertising in advance of these elections. August 16: Depending on what happens on July 19 and August 9, control of the state Senate could already be sealed for one party, but if not, the elections on this day will still matter. Of the two Democratic incumbents facing recalls, the GOP's best chance for a pickup is in the 12th District, which is represented by state Sen. Jim Holperin.
