Recall a thing of the past in race against Wisconsin's Walker

Wisconsin Governor Walker speaks during the Republican Jewish Coalition Spring Leadership Meeting at the Venetian Resort in Las VegasBy Nick Carey LA CROSSE Wis. (Reuters) – When Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker cut back on collective bargaining rights for public employees soon after taking office, the move prompted a 2012 recall election that he won – putting him on the not-very-short list of possible 2016 Republican presidential contenders. Burke says she supports having public-sector workers contribute more to pensions and healthcare, while arguing they should retain collective bargaining rights. Yet she does not emphasize the issue in her stump speech and explains she wants to move Wisconsin past it. “It became political and that’s not in the best interests of the people of Wisconsin.” FISCAL CONSERVATIVE DEMOCRAT A former executive at Trek Bicycle, which her father founded, Burke declares herself a fiscal conservative.
