I congratulate Scott Walker on his victory in Wisconsin. Governor Walker has demonstrated over the past year what sound fiscal policies can do to turn an economy around, and I believe that in November voters across the country will demonstrate that they want the same in Washington, D.C. Tonight’s results will echo beyond the borders of Wisconsin. Governor Walker has shown that citizens and taxpayers can fight back – and prevail – against the runaway government costs imposed by labor bosses. Tonight voters said ‘no’ to the tired, liberal ideas of yesterday, and ‘yes’ to fiscal responsibility and a new direction. I look forward to working with Governor Walker to help build a better, brighter future for all Americans.

NBC News, Fox News, and CNN have now all officially projected a win in WIsconsin for incumbent Republican Governor Scott Walker. The exit polling from just hours ago suggested an extremely tight race, deadlocked at 50/50, and seemed to point to a protracted night of parsing election returns, but at least for the governor’s office (there are still three GOP state senators facing recall) it appears to be a win for the GOP. Whether this has broader implications nationally is yet unclear — Walker’s recall was incited by his push to strip union rights from public sector employees, and his GOP comrades could view this as a mandate for further state level union-busting, or could see it as a cautionary tale of how close the wunderkind governor came to falling. Suffice to say the win didn’t come cheaply — the Walker campaign outspent the Barrett campaign by a nearly 8-to-1 margin. (Photo by WisPolitics)

nedhepburn:

How could anyone recall Scott Walker? The dude sang “30th Century Man”, “The Seventh Seal,” and “The Old Man’s Back Again,” man. You can’t trust Wisconsinites to get that shit. It’s like asking North Dakota to get into jazz. It’s going to take a while.

This is the only Scott Walker you guys should care about.

I wish all elections had this turnout. This should be the norm, not the exception.
