Thoughts on WI recall elections after Tuesday’s voting

Eight Republicans and four Dems appear to be the targets of recall elections.
If you view the recent State Supreme Court election as a referendum on Scott Walker’s policies and apply the results as an harbinger or the recall elections it looks something like this:
Republicans-
Alberta Darling: her district is comprised of parts of 8 counties, one of which is strongly Dem. The remaining areas (as whole counties) went 72%, 73%, and 76% for Prosser. She is viewed as safe.
Robert Cowles- 60% for Prosser.
Glenn Grothman- 70% for Prosser
Sheila Harsdorf- low 50’s for Prosser
Mary Lazich- 65% for Prosser
Dan Kapanke- He is popular but district went Dem. Considered in danger.
Randy Hopper- Counties in district went strongly for Prosser
Luther Olsehn- mid 50’s for Prosser

Democrats
Mark Miller- Dem leader, strong dem area
Jim Holpern- his area is strongly Republican (his election is a fluke) and opinion has him gone
Dave Hansen- 50/50 area, could go either way
Robert Wirch- 50/50 area, could go either way

Bottom line: one Republican in danger vs 3 dems in danger IF there are decent Conservative candidates against them…
Ain’t politics fun?

  1. Dave – thanks for this boots on the ground, from the front lines analysis.

    Although I must tell you that every article I’ve read in the last week from the MFM has emphasized how much danger these GOP senators are in because of their votes to reform public sector unions. In fact, nary a syllable was uttered about the Dem Senators being the subject of recalls at all…much less that they might actually be the ones in trouble.

    Go figure, eh?
