GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - The organizer of the “Recall Dave Hansen” committee is running for the state Senate seat. 

David Vander Leest says he filed papers for Green Bay’s Senate District 30 as a Republican. 

Vander Leest made the announcement on his Facebook page “David VanderLeest for Senate”. 

Vander Leest joins two other GOP candidates, Representative John Nygren of Marinette and co-chair of the Brown County Board of Supervisors Mary Scray who are looking to take on Hansen in a recall election. 

The Government Accountability Board has verified enough signatures for the recall to move forward.  However, GAB staff still needs to make a recommendation on thousands of recall petition challenges from Senator Hansen. 

Hansen was one of several Democrats targeted for recall after they left the state to hold-up a vote on a measure to strip collective bargaining from public employees.
