Wisconsin Winners And Losers
August 10, 2011 by staff
Wisconsin Winners And Losers, On Tuesday night, Democrats in Wisconsin moved one seat short of throwing control of the Senate Republican-held state, winning two of the six recall election against the Republican Party’s headlines. (There will be a total of nine elections to remember, even before the election won by Democrat incumbent and two more against the Democrats be next week.)
Elections remember having their origin in the union showdown between Gov. Scott Walker (R ), and Democrats earlier this year, and are largely seen as a referendum on the controversial evisceration of the state Republican Party of collective bargaining rights for public employees.
Democrats need three wins on Tuesday to take over the legislative chamber on the left. Now Badger State Republicans, who hold a narrow 17-16 majority in the state Senate, where control of the governorship and both houses of the legislature. Who wins and who loses from this “unprecedented” day of the withdrawal policy?
Governor Walker Scott Walker was not the same on the ballot, but was his agenda, said Richard Adams The Guardian in Britain. And keep the state Senate in the hands of the Republican Party mean that the “possible Republican presidential candidate in 2016″ can continue to pass their legislative priorities unhindered. And now, “Walker remembered campaigns and other senators from the state [is] less likely in 2012,” says David Weigel on the board. If the fierce anger of the left in his conservative politics, was not enough to sink three of his allies on this occasion, “what is the anti-Walker argument” for next year?
Wisconsin’s economy out of groups, from unions to the conservative Koch brothers have spent at least $ 33 million and in nine races to remember, says Robert Oak economic populist. And look, this is for the state Senate seats. “Literally, the memory was the stimulus own mini-economic Wisconsin for the duration of the fight.” Given the national implications, donors “were not filling the coffers of Wisconsin TV stations only to ensure good representation for the citizens of La Crosse and Racine,” says Andrew Malcolm in the Los Angeles Times.
Unions Democrats wrest control of the state Senate’s Republican Party, but knocking off two hostile legislators and make four to fight for their jobs, “the unions have proven very capable in the collection of signatures to force the action at the polls “said Adam Sorensen at TIME. And the reaction of labor against Walker and other antagonists legislature has at least “punished Republican governors who have seen their approval ratings plummet.”
Unions Unions have said that “taking the Senate would be a determining factor for 2011,” and failed, Weigel says the board. And while they and their allied groups past and $ 12 million to win two seats, which were overcome even by conservative groups, who “were able to attack the election last month.”
Democrats “This has to be seen as a great failure for the Democrats,” said Scott Johnson at Power Line. “After months of turmoil on the Collective Bargaining Act, the election of the Supreme Court, and now recalls it,” says Allahpundit Hot Air, Democrats “have not regained control of anything.” Not only that, two difficult victories could quickly be denied next week, when Republicans have two shots to overthrow the state Senate Democrats.
Republican “Republicans – in Wisconsin and DC – are understandably delighted,” said Steve Benen in Washington Monthly. But the Democrats are not too knocked down two state senators in “safe districts can be described as bastions of the Republican Party.” If what counts as a loss, “I look forward to many more as” losses “in 2012,” says Markos Moulitsas at Daily Kos. If Democrats can win 33 percent of Republicans held districts in the country, “Nancy Pelosi will have a large majority in 2013.”
