EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Republicans currently have control of both houses in the Wisconsin State Legislature.
But come Tuesday, that could all change.
It will only take one democratic win for democrats to take control of the State Senate.
The four republican senators being recalled include Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, State Senators Van Wanggaard, Terry Moulton and Pam Galloway.
Galloway resigned earlier this year so Jerry Petrowski will be running in her place.
The four are being recalled for the same reason as republican Governor Scott Walker, their decision to end most public workers’ collective bargaining rights to balance the state budget.
Democrats like challenger Kristen Dexter saw the measure as an attack on workers.
She’ll challenge Senator Moulton on Tuesday.
WEAU 13 News caught up with both candidates and talked to them about the election that could tip the political scales.
Dexter spoke to volunteers in Chippewa Falls Sunday afternoon before the last big push to reach voters before the historic recall election.
Democrats say if they regain control of the Governor's Office and State Senate they could bring back political balance to the state’s government.
“I think people are comfortable with balance and I think that's been one of the problems for the past two years. This party in power has had nothing compelling them to bring people to the table because they've had all the power,” Dexter said.
Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller was in Chippewa Falls Sunday to campaign for Dexter.
He said a democrat-controlled State Senate would get together an agenda that puts people back to work.
“We have wasted so much time on political wars and we have fallen behind the entire country. It will also demonstrate to those republicans, who want to pursue a different path, give them courage to do that.” Sen. Miller said.
Sen. Moulton said he spent Sunday traveling the district and talking with voters.
The republican from Chippewa Falls said democrats are trying to overturn the majority for no good reason.
“We balanced the budget without raising taxes. People are beginning to see that what we did is actually working. The jobs climate is better, the business climate is better. We’ve been gaining jobs,” Sen. Moulton said.
But whatever the outcome, both candidates said they’re ready to reach across the aisle.
“Real leadership is inclusive, it's not exclusive. I will be an inclusive leader. It will be a stark difference to the exclusive leadership Governor Walker is showing,” Dexter said
“Whether the republicans are in control or if the democrats are in control, it’s not going to affect how I work in the legislature working for my constituents,” Sen. Moulton said.
