Democracy Now: Wisconsin Dems Select Recall Challenger to Take On Gov. Walker's "Ideological Civil War"

Wisconsin Democratic primary voters have picked Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to face controversial Republican Gov. Scott Walker in a recall election. Protests erupted across Wisconsin last year after Walker announced plans to eliminate almost all collective bargaining rights for most public workers, as well as slash their pay and benefits. Walker and Barrett will now square off in a recall election on June 5. We go to Madison to speak with Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive magazine. Rothschild notes Walker's bid to remain in office has been aided by massive contributions from rich donors nationwide. "Walker is the darling of the vicious business class in America; he's a hero to every boss who wants to put [a] boot on the throat of labor," Rothschild says. "And these people ... have just been opening their wallets." For additional reports on this case, or to watch the complete independent, weekday news hour, please visit http://www.democracynow.org.
