State Rep. Sandy Pasch (D-Whitefish Bay) said Tuesday she is considering running against Sen. Alberta Darling, should a recall election happen.
“It is all in the discussion phase right now,” Pasch said. “I’m talking about it and Sheldon Wasserman is, so we are just trying to figure out who the best candidate would be.”
against Sen. Darling (R-River Hills) in a recall election, however, Pasch said she can't just sit back and watch what Darling is doing to her district. Wasserman lost in 2008 by 1,000 votes or 1 percent of the ballots cast.
“We are talking about what different candidates would bring to the table,” Pasch said. “We can’t put all this effort into putting out a recall if we don’t have a strong candidate.”
The with petitioners going door to door, staking out grocery store entrances and staging rallies in Darling's 8th District, which includes Menomonee Falls, Shorewood, Whitefish Bay and Fox Point. Those behind the recall efforts needs to collect more than 20,000 valid signatures by May 2 to spark a recall election.
“She has been someone that I voted for in the past… but you have seen over the years, she has been drifting further and further to the right,” Pasch said. “Everything that has been happening in the Capitol, she has been a part of it.”
A recent conducted by the Daily Kos, a liberal website,and Public Policy Polling says Darling would win in a recall election with 52 percent of the vote to 44 percent however, it was to an unnamed Democratic opponent. The poll has a 2 percent margin of error.
