Darling/Pasch race has closed to less than a 1000 votes.

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...

We've got our own problems with trust-fund baby Mark Dayton as Gov, Stuart Smalley and Amy Klobuchar in the Senate, and Keith Ellison in the US House.

All I can see is it might embolden the Dems and Unions here; we don't need that.

Cheers!

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.

Perhaps I understated it...

Very funny!

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 of the Ds under recall next week - Holperin, I believe, is considered highly vulnerable by both Ds and Rs.

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.

POINT TO PONDER:

Mandatory Union Dues from government paychecks STOP next month.
After this 30 Million Dollar debacle, how do Unions and the liberal whackjobs intend to finance THE GREAT RECALL! of Scott Walker??

Great news, the Gunowners of Wisconsin need to turn out big next week too, Gov Walker and the Republicans have allowed people of Wisconsin to not only keep but bear their arms. Also, saving the state and localities lots of money and improved their fiscal health unlike most of the Pubs in Washington that cut deals with Dems.

It actually would be kind of funny if she got the initial Waukesha total wrong again, so the Dems thought they won, then she reported the correct numbers. Kind of like Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown.

I've no idea .. just reading this from PA in hopes the marxist scum gets humiliated tonight.

One thing I will say about tho is that it's always a true joy to see the knowitall/smartass/thread downer types handed a big plate of crow when their 'wisdom' gets flushed down the toilet at the end of the night.
