GOP hoping voters choose fake Dems in Wis. recall election
April 23, 2012
Republican leaders hope their supporters vote for fake Democrats in May 8 recall elections, a move that could result in GOP backers having an influence in who Gov. Scott Walker faces.
Wisconsin's open primary allows voters to cast ballots for either side, Republican or Democrat, no matter their true feelings. That inevitably leads to speculation that one side or the other will try to vote for the opposing candidate they view as the weakest.
