As of 10 a.m., Wisconsin State Supreme Court Justice David Prosser held that slim lead over rival Jo Ann Kloppenberg in yesterday’s election.
But then some hand counted ballots emerged to give Kloppenberg the lead by 350 votes!
The unions certainly poured money and people into Wisconsin and outspent the GOP. Turnout was high – with one and a half million votes.
Should Prosser prevail, Governor Scott Walker’s budget and curb on collective bargaining will hold. That would bode well for other states considering those same policies.
However, a recount will inevitably be held and the Democrats often find a way to thwart the will of the voters and it looks like it has begun. Remember Norm Coleman’s lead over Al Franken in the 2006 Minnesota senate race? Franken managed to get many votes disqualified. Since then there has been proof of voter fraud on the Democrat side, but Franken still sits in the Senate.
And remember the Terry Roland-Ophelia Ford race here? Roland was leading, but the last ballots took a while to come in. When they did, surprise, surprise, Ford got a 20 vote lead.
Looks like a similar thing is happening now in Wisconsin.
RNC Chair Reince Priebus from Wisconsin needs to send all his assets to his home state. The implications are national.
