Purnima Nath, who calls herself the only conservative candidate running for Milwaukee County Executive, signed a petition to recall Governor Scott Walker in 2011.
"I was not involved in politics then but I supported Scott Walker and voted for him twice," she told "The Dan O'Donnell Show" on Tuesday. "I must have thought it was a petition supporting Scott Walker."
On her campaign website, Nath says she is "not a career politician" and "not from a political background." She tells "The Dan O'Donnell Show" that she became interested in politics only recently after a career in engineering and business.
Her campaign biographer lists her as the founder of Spindle India, Inc. and creator of IndiaFest Milwaukee.
She is running to replace retiring Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele along with several other candidates. The primary is Tuesday, February 18th with the top two vote-getters moving on to the general election on April 7th.
