RACINE - The gubernatorial recall isn't the only election race this Tuesday.

Four other Republican lawmakers are facing recall elections, including State Senator Van Wanggaard in Racine. Former Senator John Lehman is challenging Waanggard in the heavily contested 21st state Senate district race.

According to polls, the race remains a dead heat, with the two candidates campaigning and battling for every vote. Senator Wanggaard says he's not worried about the polls, only the people who will cast a ballot on Tuesday.

Democrat Lehman feels the county has the unique distinction of swapping their support term after term.

Meaning, at least right now, it's still anyone's game.
