KENOSHA - A challenger has emerged in a potential recall election.

Fred Ekornaas, a longtime Kenosha County Board supervisor, says he plans to run against Democratic State Senator Bob Wirch.

Ekornaas says he was outraged when 14 Democrats left Wisconsin to stall the vote on the now on-hold collective bargaining law.

Democrats are trying to get the entire recall petition against Wirch thrown out, alleging widespread fraud.
