Wisconsin Candidates respond to questions about ALEC?

A nice assortment of what to do about ALEC -- Democrats, not surprisingly, are generally opposed to having Wisconsin's legislation written by the proxies of rich non-residents.

CMD asks Wisconsin Candidates: What Would You Do About ALEC? | Center for Media and Democracy

The Center for Media Democracy contacted Governor Scott Walker  and the four candidates who have filed to run in the recall election against him. We asked them all to comment on the influence of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) on the state of Wisconsin and what they might do about it as governor. 
Three Democrats and one Independent have announced that they are running against Governor Walker; a primary is likely May 8. There is speculation that other candidates may still announce their intentions to run. The general election is expected to be June 5. 
Governor Walker  did not respond to our request, but the other candidates did. Below we reprint their comments in full.
