DescriptionMADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker will have a primary challenge after all.

The Government Accountability Board said Arthur Kohl-Riggs corrected problems with his nomination papers late Wednesday. And after being kept off the GOP ballot, he was put back on after having 182 more nominating signatures than the minimum.

Kohl-Riggs is a long-time State Capitol protestor. He said he’s running in the May 8th GOP recall primary to force Republicans to vote for Walker, instead of voting in the Democratic primary to try and give the governor a weaker challenger in the general election on June 5th.

As it stands now, two Republicans and five Democrats will be on the primary ballot in the governor’s contest.
