Even with the money Republicans, including the Koch brothers, poured into the state recall elections, Democrats kept all three of their seats, won two Republican seats and barely lost in three out of four of the other races.

It's pretty clear what Democrats are fighting for.

What are Republicans fighting for?

Woohoo!!

August 16 Wisconsin recall election results - JSOnline

Democratic incumbents win Wisconsin recalls - The Fix - The Washington Post

Two Wisconsin Democratic state senators survived recall elections Tuesday night, leaving Republicans with a narrow 17 to 16 majority in the upper chamber.

State Sen. Bob Wirch (D) defeated corporate attorney Jonathan Steitz (R) in the 22nd district. State Sen. Jim Holperin (D) is fighting tea party activist Kim Simac (R) in the 12th.

Gov. Scott Walker (R) won both seats in the 2010 election, but the Republican-leaning 12th district was more seriously contested.

That means Democrats have won two recalls in the state this summer; Republicans have won none.

NY 26th finally Dem!
Most of the Pub money was secret donor money. Damn shame the Evil Empire (and their brainwashed chumps) dodged a bullet. Now we have to wait till Walker's recall in Jan....

In liberal parlance when you don't achieve your goal it's a gigantic success.

Go figure.

See? Republicans don't even know what they are fighting for. Besides rich people. Maybe that's all you need.

Wirch, Holperin win Senate recalls; GOP retains 17-16 majority - JSOnline

Wirch, Holperin win Senate recalls; GOP retains 17-16 majority
Updated: Aug. 16, 2011 10:08 p.m.

August 16 recall election results
Vote breakdown by county
Election 2011

Complete coverage of the spring races and recall efforts across the state.

The six-month saga that was Wisconsin's state Senate recall movement ended Tuesday with Democrats retaining two seats - and Republicans still in possession of a week-old, razor-thin 17-16 majority.

On the fourth election day of the summer, two Democratic incumbents were victorious. Sen. Jim Holperin (D-Conover) beat challenger and tea party activist Kim Simac of Eagle River, and Sen. Bob Wirch (D-Pleasant Prairie) easily topped Republican lawyer Jonathan Steitz.

****************
Get it? GOP holds all the executive branches of the State of Wisconsin.

No?

Well then...yay. :neutral:

No, but they did get two out of three seats closer; and all they need is that one Republican who voted against Walker's budget to vote with them again. And anyway, it sends a message to Republicans. They are the real losers here. Who lost seats? Dems? No. Repubs? Yep, two of them.

Seats that they previously held, meaning get your shit together.

Next year as jobs remain scarce. Your position grows weaker.

Only a few recalls have taken place in the entire history of WI, and now Dems have managed to unseat two Repubs at one time in historic recall elections, and cons act like it's a victory for Repubs. :cuckoo:
