Wisconsin Republicans have found their first “spoiler candidate” to run as a fake Democrat in the state’s upcoming recall elections. The Green Bay Press-Gazette reported today that 82-year-old Otto Junkermann, a former GOP state representative, will run against Democrat Nancy Nusbaum, attempting to thwart her efforts to unseat Sen. Rob Cowles (R) in a recall election. Asked if he was a spoiler candidate, Junkermann responded, “I don’t know how I could avoid being considered that.”
