MADISON - Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk cast her vote on the day of the historic Wisconsin gubernatorial recall primaries.

She cast her ballot at about 10:00 a.m. Tuesday morning at the Wil-Mar Center in Madison.

Falk told TODAY'S TMJ4, along with her supporters she has no regrets about her campaign.

TODAY'S TMJ4's Cody Holyoke: "Looking back, do you think you've done everything you could?"
Kathleen Falk: "I have, and so have they.  Labor, and women, and environmentalists and community organizers did what the political insiders said was not possible."

Falk spent the day in Madison appealing to younger voters and trying to secure her spot on the June 5 recall ballot.  "The youth are underrepresented in the voting population generally, so we're trying to light a fire under them by bringing candidates in," said college Democrat Devon Cook.

The elephant in the room is late challenger and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. 

Hoping to emerge with a win, Falk believes she has the support she needs. Either way, she'll be ready.  "We'll all be united.  We have been from the beginning, and we will get the job done together," said Falk.

Falk will stay here in Madison to watch the results. Click here for complete election results.
