Recall petitions were turned in on January 17, 2012 and certified on March 30. Falk declared her candidacy on January 18. She faced Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, State Sen. Kathleen Vinehout, Secretary of State Douglas La Follette and protest candidate Gladys Huber in the May 8 primary. Hariprasad "Hari" Trivedi is running as an independent.
If elected, Falk said she would have overturned the state's new voter ID law because it discourages voters. She also said she would increase transparency.
