MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin elections board staff is recommending that state Rep. Brett Hulsey be allowed on the ballot to challenge Mary Burke for the Democratic Party nomination in the governor's race.
Government Accountability Board staff is also recommending that four incumbent members of the state Legislature be allowed on the ballot despite challenges to nomination papers they filed last week.
The board was meeting Tuesday to certify candidates for the ballot.
The incumbents facing challenges to their nomination papers are Democratic state Reps. Mandela Barnes and JoCasta Zamarripa, both of Milwaukee, and Republican Kathy Bernier, of Lake Hallie. Republican state Sen. Frank Lasee is the only incumbent senator facing a challenge.
The board is also recommending that frequent protester Jeremy Ryan be allowed to challenge U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan as a Republican.
