Robert Forseth
Former candidate for
Wisconsin State Senate District 14

Political party Democrat
Robert Forseth was a Democratic candidate for District 14 of the Wisconsin State Senate in the recall election against current incumbent Sen. Luther Olsen.

Forseth was a Democratic-placeholder candidate.[1]

Following the news that all six "fake" Democrats had turned in their final paperwork to get on the ballot to the GAB, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin announced that it would not be running their placeholder candidates in the recalls as they are no longer necessary. Party Chair Mike Tate explained, "The goal of the placeholder candidacies was to create an insurance policy against further Republican attempts to exploit the recall election schedule through dirty tricks and cynical plots."[2]

All three had filed nomination papers with a sufficient number of verified signatures.

Fred Clark and Rol Church are running for the Democratic nomination.
