Updated 9:56 p.m. WAUKESHA, Wis. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker survived a furious recall campaign on Tuesday, emerging as the victor in a bitter fight over state budgets and collective bargaining rights.
NBC News declared Walker the projected winner over Democratic challenger Tom Barrett in a closely-watched campaign first prompted after Walker drove a bill stripping public employee unions of their collective bargaining rights through Wisconsin's legislature showed little signs of abating, according to exit polls.

I don’t see this as an us versus them situation.
It is MAYBE the first recognition that we are in deep deep sh*t.
Indeed. These are cornered rats fighting for their lives. The fake petition signatures were a sure sign of their plans. We may see calls for a recount soon - luckily Walker has the stones required for this fight.
Dear public sector unions: Suck it. That is all.
I’ll drink a toast to the Governor and go to bed happy.
Bet you that Barrett files endless lawsuits, and the Purple People Beaters have another “civil disobedience” in Madison with the police doing nothing.
ACCEPT IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LET THE INQUISITION BEGIN!
Thanks for posting DU. Those people can be entertaining.:o)
“It is MAYBE the first recognition that we are in deep deep sh*t.”
Well unions and their ilk have helped bring this on; world wide.
Every left wing group who wants something for nothing; is responsible for most of the world wide economic ills.
This gives me hope that maybe the man upstairs isn’t ready to wash his hands of this country yet. JMHO
This was a landslide for liberty and a clear repudiation of unionism and communism. Governor Scott Walker has emerged as a rising star in Constitutional Conservatism.
Union worker LIFETIME PENSION PIG GREED has placed ALL of America in this situation. Eventually, the parasite runs out of host to feed on.. Amazingly, the pro-union crowd doesn’t care about their children’s futures because they’re spending their children’s futures TODAY. PIGS.
$10 says there was open weeping at NBC News...
>> Fox News was saying it was too close to call. Overcautious? <<
The exit polls were way off. Probably hired too many female graduate students to do the interviewing.
(Seriously! And a hat-tip to Mike Barone, per his comment tonight on the Hugh Hewit show.)
When will Republican take voter fraud seriously and do something about it?
I turned to CNN to enjoy watching them spin this.....
Begala on CNN just said that Obama made a huge mistake in not coming to Wisconsin to support Barret.
Ari Flescher (Dubya’s press secretary) said ‘In November, will big labor do unto Obama what he did unto them?’
I sure hope so!
a CRUSHING landslide too!
the polling firm that said it was 50/50 needs to go ahead and close up shop because they now have zero credibility.
