Wisconsin teachers union endorses Falk

Wisconsin's largest statewide teachers union has endorsed Democrat Kathleen Falk in the possible recall election against Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

The Wisconsin Education Association Council said Wednesday it is backing Falk after going through its selection process that included interviewing a number of potential candidates.

The teachers union was at the forefront of the fight last year against Walker's proposal that took away nearly all collective bargaining rights for teachers and most other public workers.

Falk is making the restoring of bargaining rights a lynchpin of her campaign.

Also on Wednesday, state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout entered the race as a Democrat. A number of other Democrats are considering running.

The state elections board is in the process of checking if there enough signatures to order a recall election.
