Hari Trivedi, 3rd gubernatorial recall candidate, fighting for undecided voters

Hari Trivedi, 3rd gubernatorial recall candidate, fighting for undecided voters

By WTMJ News Team. CREATED Jun 1, 2012

MILWAUKEE- You may have noticed commercials for a 3rd recall candidate and many wonder if Hari Trivedi could impact Tuesday's election.

In these last days before the recall election, this third candidate is making a big push to reach voters, but are there enough undecideds for Hari Trivedi to make a difference?

"There is a need for a fresh direction a fresh choice," said Trivedi.

The Brookfield doctor jumped into politics to take Wisconsin in a "new direction."

His focus, like his opponents -- jobs, jobs and jobs.  Helping employers find workers with the right skill set.  "Enhance education ..not cut back otherwise down the line we'll have a workforce which is less competitive," said Trivedi.

Trivedi wants to boost tourism, tap into renewable energy and even talks about his support for medical marijuana.

Trivedi will tell you his message is reaching voters from both the Scott Walker and Tom Barrett camps.

UWM government professor Mordecai Lee calls a third candidate in this race, unusual.  And he doesn't see Trivedi throwing off this race, no matter how close it is.

"If you've got 20 percent undecideds going into a Tuesday election then they might well break for the independent, but not when you've got this incredible infinitesimal 2 to 3 percent," said Lee.

Trivedi isn't discouraged and will continue to reach out to voters.

Trivedi has no future political plans if he loses Tuesday -- at least none that he's willing to share.
