    The Wisconsin Recalls Are Not Over

    The Wisconsin Recalls Are Not Over

    Yes, you are celebrating.  But the Wisconsin Senate recall elections are not over.

    Republicans have a chance to deliver a political coup de grâce to the national union and Democratic intimidation tactics next Tuesday when there are two elections seeking to recall Democratic State Senators Robert Wirch and James Holperin.  These two were among the fleebaggers who ran away to Illinois..

    The Recall Wirch campaign has been a focus here for months.  The Republican challenger is Jonathan Steitz.

    The challenger to Holperin is Kim Simac.

    Republicans need to turn out in force, and with a demoralized Democratic base, anything is possible.

    Update:  Next week’s recall elections may be even more important than I thought, since one group is claiming that a “RINO” state senator (Dale Schultz, who voted against the collective bargaining bill) is a risk to switch parties, which would flip the Senate unless Republicans take back one more seat.  The Wisconsin State Journal referred to Schultz as one of the “ultimate winners” of last night’s vote because it puts him in the driver’s seat.

    I thought the minority Party that held government hostage from enacting their agenda were called terrorists…so it would be fleabagging terrorists not just fleabaggers

    Good information, Chuck. Thanks.

    Senator Glenn Grothman indicates in an email that Dale Schult has absolutely no intention of changing parties.

    […] As William Jacobson reminds us, two of the three recalls of Democrat Senators get voted on next week. Both of them were among the Fleebaggers, obviously, but beyond message-sending about failure to do their jobs, there’s another reason it’s important to get out there and get rid of these people: Update: Next week’s recall elections may be even more important than I thought, since one group is claiming that a “RINO” state senator (Dale Schultz, who voted against the collective bargaining bill) is a risk to switch parties, which would flip the Senate unless Republicans take back one more seat.
