Alright, ladies. It is 9:40 CDT, and here are the results so far. We got 2 in the bag, one looks like a loss, and 3 more too early to tell. Please comment, and here are the results copied straight from wispolitics.com. I’ll keep this updated while results keep coming in.
Numbers you need to know:
Currently the Wisconsin Senate has a Republican majority by a count of 19-14. Tonight 6 Republicans face recalls, and next Tuesday (August 16), 2 Democrats face recalls. To retain the majority, Republicans need to win any 4 of those 8 races.
UPDATE 10:00PM — we have 3 declared wins. Two that are looking lossy, but the one is neck-and-neck. Not exactly outside the margin of union cheating, you understand, but we’re in it. We need one more win tonight and next Tuesday is just a chance to pad the victory.
UPDATE 10:20PM – now 3 wins, one loss. In a pleasant surprise, 8th district is now at 49-51 (63% reporting), when it was at 44-56 (43% reporting). District 18 remains at 50-50, with the Republican trailing by 137 votes out of 49,000 cast.
UPDATE 10:30PM — good news, bad news on district 18: the good news is, there’s been nothing reported in the last 20 minutes, which means our guy must have had some good returns come in. The bad news: unions are scrambling to find boxes of votes and may succeed.
UPDATE 10:40PM — the union thugs apparently found the boxes of ballots they needed. The Dem lead went from 100 to 1200 in 11 precincts, with only 3 precincts remaining. Looking very much like a 3-3 night now. We’ll need one of the two next Tuesday.
UPDATE 11:15PM – 3 wins, 2 losses so far. The 18th race, the Dem advanced the lead from 137 to 1251 in the last 14 of the 108 precincts. Your damned right I’m saying it. They held up their last few precincts to see how many they needed to win. There was a 30 minute gap between the 94th and 95th reporting precincts. They stole this seat. Meanwhile, District 8 is still anybody’s guess; we are trailing 49-51 with 68% reporting.
UPDATE 11:55PM – in a stunning development, our gal in District 8 has pulled ahead to a significant lead with 82% reporting – she’s up 53-47, a 3828 vote lead with 15 precincts left. Twitter reports have Channel 3 calling this for the Republican. I assume that is Channel 3 in Madison.
UPDATE 12:30AM – in District 8, only 2 more precincts have reported the last 45 minutes, with 13 remaining. No doubt the union thugs and thieves are working desperately to manufacture votes, but by now it is 54-46 with 84% reporting, and everybody has called this for the Republicans. I am going to bed now.
UPDATE 12:40AM – now 81 of 82 precincts reporting in, and we win in a walk, 54-46. This time I am REALLY going to bed. See you guys tomorrow! Hugs!
