Posted on 08/09/2011 9:57:01 PM PDT by Nachum
Six Republican state senators face a recall vote today in Wisconsin. Two senate Fleebaggers face recall elections next week. Democrats need to pick up three seats to gain control of the Wisconsin senate.
By the way, a liberal Chicago donor sent $200,000 to fund the far left recall candidates.
The turnout was heavy today.
JS Online has election results.
The AP also has election results
UPDATE: Its unlikely that democrats will win District 2 or District 10. The Republicans are too far ahead with nearly half the precincts reporting.

For tonight, it’ll be decided in District 8.
We know that Darling won the 8th?
Great news. Wins despite the Lefts fraud and gross abuse of authority.
Actually it doesn’t look like the tally is in.
Wishful thinking. Thinking wishfully.
Still disappointing. I wanted the thugs to be completely repudiated.
Maybe next week will bring vindication.
MSNBc dedicated most of their network coverage to the election tonight. I bet they regret that call..... :-D
This makes me wonder if the ‘flashmobs’ were vote suppression?
Great news indeed! Now if we can manage to recall a few Democrats!
Thank you for this post. I’ve been wondering how the Recall Election in WI was going. Thanks again.
“with 98 percent in, its Darling 30,868 to 28,170”
I thought sending that amount of money was illegal.
There's still an opportunity next week to replace Democrat Holperin with a TeaParty candidate (Kim Simac) in a majority Republican district.
Is that enough of a lead not to have a recount or an automatic recount?
Just think what the unions could have done with all the money they spent in Wisconsin... they could have done things like spring for some union-paid training courses so their members could better themselves... think of the possibilities... but nooooo - they had to take union money and play politics with it...
We need the “ha ha” boy from the Simpsons on this thread.
A stick in the eye for the left.
May it be yet another among many.
It's really nice to see a liberal Chicago donor piss away $200,000 and wind up with
So after all the threats, lawlessness, temper tantrums, fleeing the state, millions of dollars spent and coordination that reached as far as the W.H. the Democrats only managed to pick up a liberal district and a swing district where the Republican cheated on his wife and moved out of the district. Hardly a referendum against the policies implemented in Wisconsin. Next week Republicans have the chance to return the favor and take a vulnerable Dem incumbent and who knows...maybe they’ll pick off 2 and be essentially right back where it all began. LOL
Oh and I love that one Wisconsin district. Finally at least one county has gotten wise to the dems cheating. ;)
And the Democrats are deeply saddened. ;o)
Also, adding the total votes of ALL races, I came up with
R ==> 57% D ==> 43%
And the Republicans need to remind WI voters of that every chance they get!!
I am having trouble following the thinking of the thread. Is this a solid hold on the Senate for the GOP or are there recounts and lawsuits in the near future?
A little bit of both, I think.
And the Left now has $30 mil less than they did.
And another election coming next week.
oh, I think a lot of folks are down and out tonight, MSNBC, the dude who put up $200K, the unions that put up $30M, and the Boy President.
I do feel badly for the one R who we know for sure lost. Seems there’s a second that gets an auto recount, and most local media are calling for Darling in the 8th, so a bad night for Ds all around.
Tonight/tomorrow we should all send checks to the R’s who are running in the Dem recall election next week.
Now we recall the Dems.
AP just called the race for Darling. Looks like GOP 4, dems 1, with one to close to call. :)
Love it, just love it. Heard there was a lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth at MSNBC tonight. That just always makes my day.
Now for a twofer next week (I can hope). I read that one of next week’s is favorable, the other not so much, but maybe after today the D’s won’t have the energy and spirit to put up that much of a fight.
The theft shall begin
I love the ha ha boy!
LOL, they stink don’t they? LOSERS!!
Oh, I had to reply again.
This is SUCH a big win for us. It is freaking hugh and series, we have stuned their beebers.
It’s all been doomy and gloomy in the vast right wing blogosphere about this election.
Now I am wondering, was that just scare tactics?
Or do we still continue to believe the MSM and let them scare us?
The left thought they would score a big refudiation here, but they got, basically, bupkis.
Can I borrow a phrase?
Amen! Very grateful, glad for Wisconsin.
Who is the Koch mentioned in the headline? None of the senators were named Koch. Perhaps they are referring to the evil wealthy villains the Koch brothers who really are running America and trying to destroy poor people and unions? LOL.
I am very glad the Dems did not pull this off. Would have been spun into a huge defeat. Losing 2 seats was not good but it was hardly a mandate for the left.
Yes, it was a great night. I’m proud of the GOP in WI, they didn’t have the emotion of the goons, but they still showed up to vote.
Poor Mr. Ed was beside himself. He was there live most of the night, or at least till he figured out the unions lost. I never get enough of him talkin about “the working man” and how much the dems care about him.
I think the only thing that surprised me was the lack of coverage by Fox. :-/
Like Ann Barnhardt says, when the bullet enters their cranium, then they'll know just how much the Marxists "care" about the working man.
Roll Tide, indeed. :)
“Poor Mr. Ed was beside himself. He was there live most of the night,...”
Well, THAT has to be a first ;)
Who is Koch?
