GOP Candidate Disqualified from Wisconsin Recall Election

After collecting more than 15,000 signatures necessary to trigger a recall election against Democratic state senator Dave Hansen, Wisconsin Republicans failed to get 400 valid signatures necessary to get their preferred candidate on the ballot:
Nygren says he will "pursue further legal options" to challenge the board's ruling. Until today, Sen. Dave Hansen's district was seen as the second best opportunity for Republicans to gain a seat. Hansen will still face a recall challenge by businessman David VanderLeest, who appears to be a somewhat weaker candidate than Nygren.
