    Whoa, not so fast Democrats. Looks like Scott Walker may not be done after all.


    A good rule of thumb in politics is that voters go where the action is. Contested primaries will generate far more interest than those where there is no race. This is especially true in states like Wisconsin, which have "open" primaries, where any voter can choose where they'll cast their vote. With a contentious primary fueled by millions of dollars in spending, it was widely expected that turnout in yesterday's Democrat primary in Wisconsin would easily trump the GOP turnout. It didn't happen that way.

    Scott Walker, facing no real competition, won over 600,000 votes in yesterday's primary. His vote total was just about equal to ALL the votes cast in the competitive Democrat primary. This shouldn't have happened. It suggests that, going into next month's recall vote, Walker has a solid base of support while Democrats face a serious enthusiasm gap. Looks like Big Labor wasted another few million of its members' money.

    For those keeping score at home, let's recap: Big Labor spent millions to support their preferred candidate, Kathleen Falk, only to see her lose by 18 points. The winner of the Democrat primary, Tom Barrett, refused to participate in a 'unity rally' because he worried about being too associated with Big Labor. And, Big Labor's chief nemesis, Scott Walker, attracted at least as much support as all the Democrat candidates combined. Even though he wasn't in a competitive race.

    Big Labor likes to pretend that voters want an ever-expanding government, bestowing generous benefits on its workers. They rock themselves to sleep at night with thoughts that voters are in "solidarity" with their interests. But, however true that may once have been, those days are over. Big Labor can't even win a Democrat primary these days.

    Its going to be a long, hot summer for Big Labor after they lose the recall in June.

    Unions have spent millions in WI on this recall bs.

    Hell. All they had to do was wait for the next election. If they are so sure they are gonna win They would have saved their dues members money.

    Of course thats assuming the Dem wins.

    Hope Walker wins in a landslide.

    Walker has been a very good Governor. He's working incredibly hard trying to get Wisconsin's financial house in order. And all the greedy Unions/Democrats have done is try to thwart him at every turn. I think the People of Wisconsin are aware of that. I give them much more credit for being informed than the Unions/Democrats do. I wish Scott Walker the best. He has done a lot of good for Wisconsin. I hope he's allowed to keep doing that.
