MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Rebecca Kleefisch is already the first lieutenant governor in U.S. history to face a recall election.
On Tuesday, the Wisconsin Republican is hoping to survive it.
Kleefisch is facing Democrat Mahlon Mitchell, a firefighter and union leader. But the main target of the historic election is her boss, Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
Walker and a Republican-controlled Legislature angered Democrats and unions last year by pushing a law that strips most public workers of nearly all their collective bargaining rights.
Kleefisch didn't play a prominent role in that process, but she was washed over by the same outrage because she is Walker's second-in-command.
Kleefisch says she's been helping Walker create jobs. But Mitchell is accusing Kleefisch of being nothing more than a rubber stamp for Walker's policies.
