    Barrett won his Democratic recall primary with 54% of the vote, so he gets another crack at Walker in a month.

    Milwaukee mayor to face Walker in Wisconsin recall after winning Democratic primary | Fox News
    I wonder how much union support he'll really get, with a luke warm position like that on collective bargaining.

    Also, Walker won his primary with 97% of the vote.:lol:

    Yes, Walker had a lot of competition for the Republican Primary. He was lucky to make it out with his shirt the opposition was so strong.

    Too bad, Barrett lost fair and square to Walker and the proper place would have been to wait it out till the next scheduled election - it should have been Falk and the ones who worked for the recall to run against Walker.

    If Walker wins, what do the Dems and unions do now? Claim victory for bringing attention to Walkers 'crimes against unions' and try again?

    I have to agree. Seems to me, if you lost last time, you shouldnt be eligible to run in a recall election. ( still hoping for a Walker loss though )

    I predict a Walker win by 60/40 or better.

    Ive been seeing evidence that the Wisconsins aren't so focused on union issue as much as they are jobs. And Walkers got a pretty good record in that regard. Should be interesting to see.
