SHOREWOOD - As the recall effort against State Senator Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) continues to advance, there is talk about a re-match of the 2008 race she narrowly won.

Recall advocates collected signatures at a park and ride in River Hills and at a Shorewood budget forum Monday. 

They say they are confident they will get the necessary signatures.

Former State Representative Sheldon Wasserman was at the Shorewood function and says he's also confident organizers will get enough signatures.

Wasserman says he is strongly considering running against Darling but will not make an announcement until after the recall organizers gather enough signatures.

He says people ask him about it all the time.  Darling defeated Wasserman in 2008 by only about 1000 votes.

Darling is fighting the effort against her.  She opened up her campaign office over the weekend and passed out literature. 

Sen. Darling says she only did what voters elected her to do.
