Rebecca Kleefisch survives recall, holds onto Lt. Gov. seat (WI)

Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch survived a recall attempt Tuesday, June 5th, defeating her Democratic challenger Mahlon Mitchell and avoiding becoming the first lieutenant governor in the nation to be recalled.

Kleefisch, a Republican, was the only lieutenant governor in the U.S. to face a recall election. Now she’s also the first to survive one.

She faced a recall along with her boss, Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Democrats and unions had been angered after Walker and the GOP-led Legislature took on public-sector union rights last year.

This is a kick in the teeth to all the leftists who hurled such vulgar insults to her. I’m gloating!

Obviously the fifty bucks I sent her helped her win.

I got a nice thank you postcard from her in return.

It made my day.

Forward Rebecca

Good news, Rebecca Kleehisch got the last laugh. She did it with the ultimate four-letter word: “vote.”

Have you ever noted how many conservative women are really attractive, while so many liberal woman, well, aren’t? Rhetorical question.

And Rebecca’s first words after her Victory were:

“THIS is what Democracy looks like!”

She’s wonderful. And her husband (a legislator) is funny too.
