SykesCharlie Charles Sykes Waukesha just now coming in; should go big for Darling.
I believe Pasch had a good lead at one point that has evaporated...
This one could be another Horse Race to the wire:
Pasch , Sandra Dem 20,562 51%
Darling , Alberta (i) GOP 19,675 49%
The Fat Lady has not sung on this one... Either way...
All I can see is it might embolden the Dems and Unions here; we don't need that.
I’m in Alaska and I just got caught up in this.
I have to work a midshift tonight so I really want to go take a nap before work.
Yes, and if we hold it, I expect the WI GOP and Governor Walker to have a renewed confidence!
Darling won Washington Co 73-27.
Waukesha numbers to follow which should be big for her too.
SykesCharlie Charles Sykes @Schneider_CM: If any newspaper wants to make Wisconsin history, go ahead and print a "Pasch Defeats Darling" headline.
If Darling holds we lose the zipper and the guy in the liberal district. And the unions spend valuable millions to remain a minority in a blue state. That would be a fine night.
One word for you. Coffee!! ;-)
One of the Ds under recall next week - Holperin, I believe, is considered highly vulnerable by both Ds and Rs.
That’s good to hear. The CA Republican machine is as inept as it is non-existent.
Oh, please, please, please!
What the heck is up with the FR clock? Am I in a time warp?
Err, there's a CA Republican machine lol? I'd say nonexistent.
I feel so bad for CA conservatives. It must be hard not to just throw in the towel and give up.
FR system clock’s been hosed for months and months and months . . .
It’s been off since the last server crash.
I’ve got 23:48?
Same warp, wanna have a beer?
Thx every1 for the updates! On the mobile 2night
Did all the counters leave for the night- there hasn’t been an update on JS or AP for a long time now..
