The Wisconsin Senate is made up of 33 members. This morning the sun shone on 19 Republicans and 14 Democrats. A solid majority for the Republicans.
However, because Democrats are upset that properly elected Senators passed a bill that was also passed by properly elected Congressman which was then signed into law by properly elected Governors, they are forcing, and have indeed, forced, a recall election for 6 of those 19 Republican seats.
For the Democrats to emerge victorious, they must defeat 3 incumbent Republicans. This would be a 6 seat turn around giving the
cry babies, sorry, sore losers, ahem, Democrats a razor thin majority; 16-17.
Those who remember the Prosser election with sadness are destined to be sad again. Going into the final race, the Republicans were “winning” 3-2. But a tie goes to the losers, ahem, Democrats. So they need to win 4 out of 6. And the last Democrat was ahead by 2,000 votes.
However, there is no joy in Mudville as only 1 f 11 Waukesha precincts reported. This is the Waukesha that broke for Prosser 73% to 27%. And guess what, glory be to the gods, ‘ol Waukesha stood and delivered! They cared for the Republican 66% to 34%.
And to think, two more Democrats will face recall elections for their actions in running away from the office they swore to serve.
