Democrats choose candidate for 10th State Senate District

Posted:

Menomonie (WQOW) - Western Wisconsin Democrats have chosen a candidate in a possible recall election.

Ellsworth high school teacher Shelly Moore has tossed her hat into the ring for the 10th Senate District. A recall petition for state senator Sheila Harsdorf was submitted to the state last month. The Government Accountability Board has until June 18th to verify the signatures. If they are verified, a recall election would most likely happen on July 12th. Moore is also a board member of the National Education Association, but says she cares about more than schools.

"Obviously education is very important to me, but it's merely the basis for an understanding that I bring to how we can really look at making our taxes in our state fair, how we can really be working to do the best we can for the working families and senior citizens of Northwest Wisconsin," says Moore.

Harsdorf's supporters responded to the announcement today, saying "by bypassing the normal election process, the special interests simply get to choose their candidate in an attempt to keep the status quo that taxpayers can't afford and is bankrupting our state. We look forward to speaking to voters about Moore's close allegiance to special interests and their mutual agenda of spend first, tax more, and continued use of the credit card."
