Another case of Republican primary voters saving the Democrat.

Republicans can be good at that.

When one of the talk shows she's been hyped on suddenly downplayed her chances today I figured it didn't look good.

“Another case?? What does that mean?”

The first recall district... the clearly weaker Republican won the primary and got trounced in the recall.

Races thus far coming in exactly opposite of predictions. Wirch might be toast, depending upon where returns are coming from.

I go on record an say the GOP loses both these races. The last polls before the election had Simac and Stietz trailing by 14 and 13 points respectivly.

I agree with GR...I’ll bet Rhinelander’s not in yet. Both Dems will win by double digits. Too bad.

Simac is on a thin thread. She needs a miracle.

Unless there is a big GOP district out there that can give her a 1500 vote margin. I don't know the geography well enough to know what the districts still out mean.

It’s all good though. We go the Unions to blow a pot full of money only to not pick up the majority they so badly wanted. That’s Less money in their pot for 2012 or a potential Scott Walker recall.

How the Hell any rational person can sanction people vacating their job on the public payroll, allowing them to cash their paychecks, and then rewarding this behavior is beyond me. Especially at 9 percent unemployment.
