"No governor in recent memory has been so controversial," the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel editorial begins. "No governor in America is so polarizing. Everyone has an opinion about Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin. Here's ours: We see no reason to remove Walker from office. We recommend him in the June 5 recall election."
Walker will face Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett at the polls.
The editorial opines that while Walker went too far in his drive to restrict unions' collective-bargaining rights — the issue that spurred intense Democratic backlash — "a disagreement over a single policy is simply not enough to justify a vote against the governor."
A series of recent polls show Walker building a lead over Barrett.
