MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Four Republican state senators targeted for recall are expected to submit their challenges to the signatures that could result in voiding any elections.

Thursday was the deadline for the senators to make any challenges to petitions filed with the Government Accountability Board.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald has said he plans on challenging enough to stop the recall election against him.

The other three senators haven't said how many signatures they will challenge. Those targeted senators are Van Wanggaard of Racine, Terry Moulton of Chippewa Falls and Pam Galloway of Wausau.

Once submitted, it's then up to the GAB to determine whether there are enough valid signatures to continue with the elections.

Gov. Scott Walker has until Feb. 27 to submit his challenges.
