BREAKING NEWS: SCOTT WALKER IS VICTORIOUS IN RECALL ELECTION
Today is a very important day. Voters go to the polls in Wisconsin to keep or recall their current governor. This is only the third time in American history a sitting governor has faced a recall election, and unless you live under a rock, you've probably heard about it. As it was in 2010, (minor candidates aside), embattled republican governor Scott Walker faces Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett. This is the second time in less than two years that Walker has faced Barrett head-to-head.
That being said, it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that this blog supports Scott Walker. Bigger questions need to be asked, however:
- Who do you think will win the recall election?
- What will be the percentage of votes cast for each candidate? See 2010's results here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wisconsin_gubernatorial_election,_2010
- Will this race have national implications? If Walker wins, would the state go to Mitt Romney in November? If Barrett wins, will it go to Obama?
