TOTAL NON-RECALL … Republicans Gov. Scott Walker, Lt. Gov. Kleefisch and 3 of 4 GOP Senators Win Recall Victories: Scott Fitzgerald, Terry Moulton, Jerry Petrowski … Van Wanggaard Not Yet Called
Tonight in Wisconsin it was a TOTAL “almost” NON-RECALL …
Not only did Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch survive their recall elections and won handily, so did three of the four Republican state Senators who faced recall elections as well. Republican Wisconsin state Senators Scott Fitzgerald, Terry Moulton and Jerry Petrowski all survived an won their recall elections. They not only won, they won handily. Only the state Senate seat 21 has not been called. With 28% of precincts reporting Van Wanggaard (R) leads John Lehman (D), 60% to 40%. Seeing that Senate seat 21 represents Racine, one that went for Walker over Barrett 63% to 36.5%, it is hard to imagine that Van Wanggaard will not win as well.
UPDATE I: 100% of precincts voting and John Lehman defeats GOP incumbent Van Wanggaard, 51% to 49% … 36255 votes to 35476.
