Southeastern Wisconsin senators among recall targets

    Groups filed notice with the state this week that they intend to try recalling six GOP state senators.
    Those targeted include Rob Cowles of Green Bay, Alberta Darling of River Hills, Luther Olsen of Ripon, Randy Hopper of Fond du Lac, Glenn Grothman of West Bend and Mary Lazich of New Berlin.
    They join five Dems already targeted for recalls: Spencer Coggs of Milwaukee, Jim Holperin of Conover, Mark Miller of Monona and Dave Hansen of Green Bay.
    The recalls stem from the budget standoff in Madison. Conservatives say Democrats are trying undo the November election results through recall and take back control of the state Senate. Liberals say Republicans are making trouble for themselves by refusing to compromise and trying to take away most collective bargaining rights of public workers.
    All of those under recall threat are up for re-election in November 2012.
