POPLAR, WI (WTAQ) - A state Senator from Poplar could become the first Democrat targeting for recall in the most recent round of recall efforts.
Paperwork was filed last Friday to create the Exploratory Committee to Recall Bob Jauch.
Backers say they will start a recall petition drive if people in the area feel Jauch isn’t being supportive enough of mining legislation aimed at bringing a big mine and hundreds of jobs to Ashland and Iron counties.
Also getting involved is a group with Milwaukee connections. Jauch says they are meddling in a district they know nothing about.
Jauch says he is puzzled by the recall, since he has said he supports revising mining laws as long as there are adequate environmental protections.
