This is an important race. Since the Republicans have taken over in Wisconsin, they’ve added tens of thousands of jobs, balanced the budget and schools have been able to keep teachers employed. They did what they were elected to do. The unions, on the other hand, need to be told that collective bargaining is not a “right” but an “entitlement.”
Meanwhile the thuggish unions have spent a small fortune on hate ads against the Republicans. Union money has been pouring into the Democratic campaigns. Buying politicians and an entire political party is not what our Founding Fathers had in mind. It might be what we have become in the United States, but not in Wisconsin, not today. Money did not win this election and has stemmed the union greed.
Hope springs eternal in Wisconsin!
Four of the Wisconsin recall elections have been called for the GOP – Robert Cowles, Luther Olsen, Alberta Darling, and Shiela Harsdorf won. Two went Democratic – Jennifer Schilling and Jessica KIng. The Democrats needed three seats.
