Conservative Recalls in Wis. Target Democrat, Republican for Voting Against Mine

Tuesday, 20 Mar 2012 06:07 PM

MADISON — Conservatives have launched recall efforts against two state senators — a Democrat and a Republican — who opposed a bill that would have helped a Florida company open a huge iron mine in Wisconsin's northwoods, saying the duo cost the state jobs.

Shirl LaBarre of Hayward filed paperwork Monday with the state Government Accountability Board authorizing her to start collecting recall signatures against Sen. Bob Jauch, D-Poplar. Dan Curran of Dodgeville filed papers with the board authorizing him to create a committee to explore recalling Sen. Dale Schultz, R-Richland Center.

LaBarre and Curran are affiliated with the Citizens for Responsible Government Network (CRG), which works to elect conservative candidates.

Jauch said CRG doesn't care about northern Wisconsin.

"They just want to make sure they own the politics and control the person who represents the north," Jauch said. "It is obvious that CRG doesn't want good government. While the public yearns for bipartisan cooperation this extreme group seems to condemn it."

Schultz said he voted his conscience and believes most people in his district are behind him.

"I've represented the people out there for a long time," he said. "I think I know them well. I think they know me well. I'll make my case like I always have."
