Darn, District 21 returns are coming in so slowly. Looks good with 21% in, but the rest of the Senate Districts have about 70% in and have been called. It is going to be late before we know if the GOP holds the Senate.

Thank you, dear Lord for hearing our prayers.

Thank you, citizens of Wisconsin, for your guts, your passion and your votes! You used your common sense and you came together for the good of Wisconsin...for this great country!

Now, roll up your sleeves and protect what you voted for. Make this a win in November by REMOVING socialist/communist oboma and a win by voting FOR Romney, who is NOT a socialist/communist. This is the beginning of small steps to returning this country to the Constitution, liberty and freedom. A win for Romney in November, and then we must keep vigilant to insure that Romney follows the will of We The People. He has a job to do, and we have a job to do.

To: Mr. K
did the GOP pick up any sets today?

There were not (unfortunately) any demoRAT state senate races up for recall this year. Just the 4-5 last year, which they all retained. HOWEVER the Repubs (Walker, Kleefisch, the 4 Repub senators) are all kicking the crap out of the demoRATs & unions in this recall election. The only race still open (the RATs are holding back on reporting the results) is the Repub Van Wanggaard, who leads the demTurd challenger by 60-40%, with 28% of the precincts reporting. I believe the RATs are dragging this one out, desperately searching & conniving & cheating, to try & pull this one out.

PLEASE do not slack off in our prayers for Van Wanggaard to win this recall election in a resounding way, and to Praise God from whom all blessings flow, for the victory. We are in a spiritual warfare against the demonic, satanic, evil forces of the demoRATs & union thugs.

What was the margin?

The Wisconsinvote site I was looking at won’t post any more than 28% of the vote for the District 21 seat. That site is Wisconsin Public radio — I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that those bastards won’t post the results!!!

I saw “ET” on the Walker recall petition.
It stood as a valid “signature”.

After we get Photo ID back, this state is no longer up for grabs, ever again. We won big today, even without it.

There was plenty of fraud as usual, more than usual.
I say 10 years in prison for that offense.
So few ever get prosecuted. The AG Van Hollen has prosecuted some in the past, and gotten convictions.
Getting our Photo Voter ID Law back will be a nice hurdle for the dems in the future. Hopefully it will be in place again by November. The dem controlled courts have stopped it for now.

CNN just had some tearful voters saying that this is the end of America as we know it. (From his lips to God's ears.) Without exception they're all blaming it on being outspent and how unfair it is.

No one is commenting on how Obama erred by not finding time to campaign for Barrett, even when he was so close to the State. A defender says he has too much on his plate to worry about Wisconsin ignoring the fact he seems to find plenty of time to fly cross country to raise $$.

Incredible, isn't it? CNN and MSNBC are "reporting" the polar opposite of what we've been hearing on Fox News and FBN all night long. The question about why Obama skipped Wisconsin (when he was in the area recently) and quietly Tweeted his feeble endorsement of Barrett was brought up constantly on all shows on FNC.

All I hard from libs on CNN and on MSNBC in particular (surprise, surprise) was whining about how Barrett was outspent by Republican and out-of-state Tea Party groups.

What a fabulous victory tonight! I sure wish we here in the People's Socialist Republik of Connecticut had a wonderful LEADER like Gov. Scott Walker!

Adding my congratulations to all the good folks in WI who went the extra mile to win this one for all of America. I had meetings all evening and didn’t get to keep up with this thread as I usually do, but I’m actually glad I missed it. When I came home the results were already in and I got to celebrate without all the frayed nerves. Jumping up and down and praising the Lord for being so good.

Progressives are delusional sacks of garbage. If Barrett had won they would have said how great this is for Obama, but now that he lost, not only lost but got his far left ass KICKED MSLSD just can’t deal with the fact that with fair elections(Without voter fraud and mickey mouse voting 100 times for a Dem) they can’t win. Without voter fraud they lose every time

Yep, that's how we got our far-left, union thug Gov. Dannel Malloy here in The People's Socialist Republik of Connecticut in 2010. When Malloy nearly lost to the Republican candidate, the 'RAT Secretary of State suddenly declared an "emergency" and stated that the polls had to stay open an extra two hours - until 10pm ET (unheard of) in Bridgeport, CT - one of the most disgusting, corrupt 'RAT cities in the country. All this so the "voters" wouldn't be "disenfranchised".

The result? A mysterious "bag of votes" was "found" in Bridgeport after that extended election, and Dannel Malloy became our 88th governor. The Republican candidate (Foley) barely fought the results... typical milquetoast RINO.

I don't have time right now to go into detail on just how CT has changed under a 'RAT Governor and 'RAT controlled state legislature. I barely recognize my home state anymore. The 70 new taxes they put into effect is only the tip of the iceberg.

It absolutely sucks... I can't wait 'til the day hubby and I get make our Great Escape out of this liberal hellhole...
