Scott Walker wins recall election


Posted: 6/5/12

Today Scott Walker became the first Governor in a recall election to remain in office.  Scott Walker won against Tom Barrett 53%–47%.  A recall election of a U.S. Governor has only occurred three times in U.S. history.  The victory is considered a blow to unions and Democrats.  Unions spent millions to oust Gov. Scott Walker.  The Lieutenant Governor and the other 4 Senators are also headed for strong victories.  Tom Barrett and Scott Walker ran against each other in 2010 with Scott Walker winning by 6%.  Voter turnout was quite high for this recall vote.

Update: Three of the four Senators who faced a recall election have handily won, with Senator Van Wanggaard losing 49% to 51% ref.

Some significant things to note:


Throughout Scott Walker's term in office voters have had ample opportunity to see Democrat and Republican positions on the issues and tactics used by both parties and have spoken at the polls.
