At least 15 file nomination papers in 6 recalls targeting GOP senators

UPDATED JUNE 15, 4:54 P.M.

Nomination papers are in for the six recalls against GOP senators.

So far, a GAB nomination paper tracking report lists the number of valid signatures submitted for only a few candidates, but a separate candidate registration report lists whether candidates have filed nomination papers.

In addition to six Democratic candidates, the latest GAB candidate registration report, posted just after 5 p.m., listed six candidates who have been identified as GOP protest candidates running as Democrats, three “placeholder” Democratic candidates the Dem party indicated it would run in order to ensure a primary, and one independent. The independent candidate was newly listed today, but it was unclear whether he filed nomination papers, and a Democrat listed as running in the 18th SD dropped out of the race in April.

The list is available at: http://gab.wi.gov/elections-voting/2011/recall/july-12/all-candidates

The list of candidates who have filed is below, including the number of signatures if the GAB had them posted as of 5 p.m.
