“Wasnt Hopper the one with messy home life issues?”
Yes it was. And unfortunately in a very close race like his, it could make the difference between a W or an L.
If Darling and Hopper can win, the Union leaders will be doing alot of drinking tonight.
I’m going to bed. This is as unnerving as the Prosser/Kloppy race.
Any idea on Hopper?
4000 vote victory in Germantown was just posted.
They do that anyway.
Perhaps I understated it...
Just a few precincts left...those should trend against him.
4-2 GOP ends up holding likely.
Hopper should have stepped down and let another Republican run for him, we don’t need that kind of garbage in the GOP.
Was that for Darling? I just checked AP again, and that race looks a lot closer than it did a few minutes ago.
I just hope his actions didn't cost us the Senate.
Same thing I see on AP and JS, Darling down by 2%.
Dunno why I am not showing these numbers that say Darling is ahead.
What a bastard!!
I’m not sure if I really want him to win now. Maybe he should just go home, repent, and fix his marriage.

JS is dragging.
It's interesting, Powerline got really pessimistic about Darling, but given the way Prosser took Waukesha County and the reasonable assumptions about Milwaukee suburbs, you could see this tightening up bigtime.
No sleep until Darling declared winner, and I am on the east coast.
Even at 17-16 GOP majority, we make it back to 18-15 next week.
Quite a vindication for Walker and defeat for unions.
Bret Baier just retweeted Moulitsas, who claims that the AP numbers haven’t been completely updated yet.
LOL. I’m waiting to go to sleep until they call it for Darling too. Hope they do it soon as I took a Tylenol PM an hour ago and it’s starting to hit
I’ll defer to you; nothing changing on the JS site.
How do you know the election will go republican next week?
