Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett has won the Democratic primary and will face Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker in a June 5 recall election that has become a nationally watched battle over union rights.

Based on preliminary results in Tuesday's primary, Barrett beat three other Democrats and one Republican running as a Democrat.

Preliminary results show Barrett had 54 percent of the vote. Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, who was the favorite candidate of major unions, was second with 37 percent. Secretary of State Doug La Follette got 3 percent followed by state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout with 4 percent.

Gladys Huber, the fake Democrat, got less than 1 percent.

The Barrett win sets up a rematch of the 2010 governor's race in which Walker won by 5 percentage points.
