All sides agree to May 8, June 5 for recalls

MADISON- A tentative agreement would set May 8 and June 5 for recall elections against Gov. Scott Walker and five other Republicans.

On Tuesday, lawmakers for the state elections board, recall committees and recall targets agreed to that timeline. All three are scheduled to appear before a Dane County judge Wednesday to get approval.

If there are no extensions, any primary election would be May 1 and the general election would be May 29.  Under the deal, if primaries are required they would be held on May 8 with a general election a month later on June 5.

The Wisconsin State Journal reported on the agreement that Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess was to consider Wednesday.
