    Wisconsin Gubernatorial Recall debates:
  • Gov. Scott Walker in 2011 terminated collective bargaining rights for state employees (including teachers' unions and numerous other unions).
  • In protest, the governor plus numerous members of the Wisconsin legislature were subject to a "recall election" -- a special election, initiated by petition, prior to the end of their term.
  • A primary election took place on May 8, 2012; the general election took place on Tuesday, June 5, 2012.
  • This was only the 3rd time in US history that a governor was subject to a recall election, and the first time that the incumbent won.
  • At the state legislature level, in this election plus 2011 recall elections, Democrats won enough seats to take control of the State Senate.
