Socialist Democrats Win - Demos pick off GOP State Senators one by one in recalls to retake control.
- Non-Marxists have their work cut out for them. The public is totally addicted to re-distributing the wealth from those who produce to the teat sucklers of society.
The 2012 election is far from over. Almost half of American society will vote for any red flag waving Marxist who promises them free stuff paid for by some other guy. While Republicans are doing a victory dance in the Governor's recall the Democrats appear to have retaken the State Senate from the GOP.
Unofficial returns from Tuesday's election in the 21st Senate District showed Democratic challenger John Lehman leading incumbent Republican Sen. Van Wanggaard by less than 800 votes with all precincts reporting. Democrats needed Lehman to win to gain a one-seat majority in the Senate and save at least some face after Republicans easily turned back five other recall bids reports Real Clear Politics.
Lehman, who held the seat until Wanggaard defeated him in 2010, was quick to declare the grudge match a victory. Democratic Senate Leader Mark Miller, meanwhile, issued a statement declaring himself the new majority leader.
"We have won, yeah," Lehman said Wednesday. "We're happy to have prevailed."
Democrats and their allies ousted two GOP senators in recall elections last summer. Over the winter they gathered more than enough signatures from the public to force Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and four more GOP senators, including Wanggaard, into Tuesday's recalls.
One of the four senators, Pam Galloway of Wausau, quit her post ahead of the elections rather than campaign. Her resignation left the Senate divided evenly between Republicans and Democrats, 16-16, and gave Democrats hope of taking the chamber back. All three incumbents had to hold their seats and a Republican had to win Galloway's open seat to give Republicans the majority; Democrats, on the other handed, needed to win just one seat.
