New thread so we can keep this at the top of the breaking news sidebar.
Please posts updates here.
But not *that* close - Barrett is woefully underperforming in areas of Dane County that he would need to close the margin.
I have tuned to MSNBC for the first time in years just to watch. It’s a train wreck. The Queen of England’s Bonnaroo is on half the time.
“It’s over. The Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.”
What? They didn’t blame Bush?
Pete sang that one.
Peter Barca (Wi House Minority leader) is saying that there’s still a lot of votes out there - especially in racine. He says that the night may end in a Truman-Dewey fashion.
Yep, Sarah definitely needs a new hair style. She’s still smart as a whip and I wish she was running against Obama instead of Romney.
I’m seeing some reports on Twitter that some people are still voting?? Is that true? Also I’m seeing Barrett is not conceding the race..
Awesome,you are probably right.SCYTL counting the votes in Spain still bothers me.
I agree with you. Her long bangs cast shadows over her eyes. I saw her a couple of days ago and her bangs were swept to the side and her hair was sleeker and I thought she looked great.
What’s in Menominee County? Why are they taking so long to report?
They must be on lockdown over there. I can't find a results thread over there. The latest about the Recall Election I can find there is that Holder and his people will be monitoring the election.
Walker's lead is currently 169,451 votes and the lead is growing while the percentage lead remains very stable. They might need to find 200,000 + votes to steal it. That is a tall order under this kind of national scrutiny.
The big difference is down-ticket. Palin would have created much more energy and would have been amazing!
Walker - 58%
Barrett - 41%
Barrett only leading in six of 72 counties. By all measures, it is a GOP blowout!
Color Wisconsin RED for your November electoral map!
I don't usually do this but I wandered over to DU for a little schadenfreude...there are actually threads there screaming that people are still waiting in line to vote in the urban areas! Hilarious stuff. Only now, I have to scrub my browsing history for having been there.
If that is the same county Menominee the city is in.. Not much there. Farm country.
It’s Me-no-money ;)
I’m hoping the unions are listening because I so want this BS to be over. We shouldn’t have even had this recall election. Wisconsin needs jobs, not a recall of the Gov.
Well they think of Bush as a Nazi so .......
Typical DU lies and cussing little else.
LOL...I guess I missed that one
Uh, after dropping in on the DUmp, you'll need a vat of iodine to wash away the funk.
Turn out the lights the party’s over they say that all good things must end
Let’s call it a night the party’s over and tomorrow starts the same old thing again
What a crazy crazy party never seen so many people
Laughin’ dancin’ look at you you’re havin’ fun
But look at me I’m almost cryin’ but that don’t keep your love from dyin’
Misery cause for me the party’s over
She looked great on Stossel the other night.
Thank you for all of your hard work Jean!
Conservatives needed a boost and Walker’s win gave it to us. Heck, I am ready to vote for Walker for president! a politician that does exactly what he said he would do if elected is a rare species. TYVM for the updates Red Steel
Interesting results out of NJ tonite - two left-wing Dem congressmen, Pascrell and Rothman, had been redistricted into one district. The primary was extremely nasty - Paterson in Pascrell’s district has a high Muslim population and some radical elements in that community had posted extreme antisemitic bills for Pascrell and against Rothman over his support for Israel. Pascrell is winning big, about 70-30, but the Republican nominee for this district is Shmuely Boteach, a rabbi who does a lot of commentary on TV. A heavily Dem district, but Boteach is a character and may make a run for it, especially given the nastiness of the Dem primary.
1. It's over
2. The margin will exceed 5%, at any rate, probably more like 7 or 8 points.
Yep, he looked real creepy the way he kept saying it, like they have a million votes hidden somewhere. Wouldn’t put it past them.
The lead is dropping.
I don’t trust any of them until all of Dane is in. Rock, which is also blue has only 39% reporting.
Good point, I thought about that as soon as I posted.
OTOH, who wants to sound like Pete?
God Bless Wisconsin, and God Bless Gov. Walker!
Isn’t it amazing what someone can accomplish when they stand up for what is right?
Now I need a shower! I think there was a “Lousy FReeper Troll” in the bunch, too! LOL!
I’m thinking it will be a while before another state’s Democrats try to occupy a state capital and trash it.
I have not watched MSNBC for so long I don't even know where to find it.
Settle down n00b. Go back to the DUmp if you want to slam how Sarah looked tonight. She looked as wonderful as ever. FR is Sarah Palin Country, but you might not know that....
Amen! what a sweet victory! I am hyped.
Did you see this?
Got it from DU
From Hot Air-
Update: Only 38 percent of Dane County is in as I write this so the statewide margin will narrow, but incredibly, Walkers sitting on a 17-point lead with 55 percent of the total votes counted. Wow.
Did Barrett even win Milwaukee or Madison??

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Jewish Press endorses Pascrell because he’s a Democrat
She's a national treasure, a future POTUS. If I think she looks ill, it's from a place of concern for her.
You having a death wish? Could get what you’re asking for if you keep up with that kind of talk!
Didn't you hear?
It's over. The German's bombed Pearl Harbor.
Thanks for posting that info.
It’s a good night, isn’t it!
Hooray for GB.
Hooray for everyone.
Now, let’s stop this and start winning. Together. Enough fighting.
Romney pick a winner. Then we’ll pick a team. Either way, the GOP will win this one.
Maybe we’ll have Palin in 2016. Either on the team. Or on the other side. :D
Either way, it’s good.
Just watching CNN and their reporter at the Capitol in Madison was drowned out by horns and screaming kids waving dollar bills and money bags. Children. Spoiled children.
Where the heck are they still voting...oh, wait they mean the boxes under the stairway in the backroom in Racine, right?
<I love Palin, but she looks awful today!
I can’t believe I’m weighing in on this, considering the importance of the day, but my son and I just saw her and thought the same thing. She needs to cut her bangs. The bangs, eyebrows, eye glass rims were all mushed together and hid her eyes.
The problem is that FNC makeup people are state of the art and Sarah is in Alaska right now.So there is a difference. But I swear the gal always looks great to me!!
