MILWAUKEE- Wisconsin Republicans and Democrats have been building up to Tuesday's election for more than six months.

The recall election is turning into a red hot issue for small business owner Sharon Costigan in Delafield.

"This is just silliness," said Costigan.  "This is costing us how many millions of dollars?"

That's not the issue for retired police officer John Harrington in the Story Hill neighborhood near Miller Park.  "I want Scott Walker to have to stand up and answer questions directly," said Harrington.

Harrington says he collected more than 100 signatures to help recall Governor Walker.  "I think the focus should be on Walker," said Harrington.  "He needs to explain a lot of things."

Recall Walker signs are everywhere in Harrington's neighborhood.  He says he can't wait for the election.  "He makes a promise to create 250,000 new private sector jobs but he (Walker) never went anywhere in this state to save a job, " says Harrington.

Costigan thinks Walker is doing such a good job he should run for President. She believes Walker has delivered on his campaign promises.  "He said he was going to balance the budget and he ( Walker) said he was going to get us out of debt and he said he was going to try to raise our taxes," said Costigan.

The recall election primary for Democrats and Republicans is set for Tuesday; the general election is on June 5.
