    MILWAUKEE -- There may be a glimmer of good news for Wisconsin Democrats despite last night’s convincing win by Republican Scott Walker in the recall race for governor.

    After a vote tabulation glitch in Racine County, Democrat John Lehman appears to have come out on top in a state senate recall that late Tuesday night looked like it was going the way of incumbent Republican Van Wanggard. The margin is less than 1,000 votes, and Wanggard has yet to concede though Lehman, who held the seat until 2010, declared victory.

    It’s only one seat, but that’s enough for now to flip control of the state senate from the GOP to Democrats, a change that could in theory make things harder for Walker to impose his conservative agenda in Madison.

    The WI GOP loses control of one branch of the government and call it a victory.

    I don't remember anyone on the right calling it a Democratic victory when the Democrats lost control of the House in 2010.

    I guess the threshold for what qualifies as nonsense has been raised by the Right again.

    So the Dems will make it hard for Walker to keep doing what helps the state, and so the next election more Dems will be thrown out. The circle of Life.

    Are you saying the dems should block any legislation Walker proposes?
    And if so you claim that is a good thing?

    The GOP retained control of 2 branches of government, and that is a victory, moron.

    As for the Senate, 16 senate seats are up for re-election in November. Your Democratic control of 1/3 of WI government may be short lived.

    I don't think "he's" saying anything, it was a "copy and paste" post with no attention to original thought whatsoever.
