Walker wins! Democrats get swept
It’s a clean sweep – Governor Scott Walker beat Mayor Tom Barrett in a lopsided 53-46% victory and the four recalled Senators are safe in landslide wins.
Unions and the progressive agenda are taking a huge hit as popular sentiment is falling behind fiscal sanity and a responsible governor. While the election implications are dire for the President and Democrats, the news is good for all of the Republicans also recalled.
Rebecca Kleefisch will remain the state’s Lt. Governor and all four Republican State Senate seats that were recalled will remain Republican.
- Scott Fitzgerald handily won the right to keep his position in district 13 by a 60-39% margin.
- Kristen Dexter was handed a defeat in her bid to take Terry Moulton’s district 23 seat away.
- Jerry Petrowski beat back the challenge by Donna Seidel with a 66-34% margin
- Van Wanggaard will hold on to his seat beating out Democrat challenger John Lehman 63-37%
Not to be outdone, CNN projected Walker the winner in the race at .. 10:22pm with an oddly worded tweet:
After all the union money and Democrat grass roots effort, it appears that America is looking for less government and more sanity.
