KOCH WINS!… Wisconsin Recall Election Results …GOP Holds Districts 2, 10, 14 & 8! Retain Senate!!

Six Republican state senators face a recall vote today in Wisconsin. Two senate Fleebaggers face recall elections next week. Democrats need to pick up three seats to gain control of the Wisconsin senate.

By the way, a liberal Chicago donor sent $200,000 to fund the far left recall candidates.

The turnout was heavy today.

JS Online has election results.

The AP also has election results

UPDATE: It’s unlikely that democrats will win District 2 or District 10.
The Republicans are too far ahead with nearly half the precincts reporting.

  • Well, fingers crossed. With the millions unions are spending, it will be a minor miracle if we hold on.

  • sybilll

    If you had told me 3 years ago that I would be closely following a WI election with keen interest, I would have told you you were insane.

  • Conservative Ken

    I hope they don’t pull a Carnahan and get a last minute surge that throws a close election. Bryan Wahby pulled that stunt on Ed Martin.

  • retired military

    It looks pretty good so far. Only one race tied. If that continues count on the dems to steal it.

    But if republicans lose 1 seat and then the dems lose a few next week it will be laughable.

  • Insufficiently Sensitive

    Dem districts will be sandbagging their counts, to determine how many votes to manufacture to tip the balance late in the process.

  • Trialdog

    I live in Menomonie. Went to lunch from work and saw the harridans, old hippies, and usual suspects standing on street corners holding signs for the awful Shelly Moore, a vile unionist backed by the out of state Obamunist forces and supported locally by anyone who considers themselves important if they despise republicans, think Obama is doing a great job, and have at least 3 Che T-shirts. God it was a long drive.

  • How destructive the Left is. We can’t even rest between elections, they want to overload and crash the entire system by exhausting people and finances.

    What happens when they lose? They riot?

  • bigkahuna

    Looks like a GOP victory so far! Never underestimate the libs/ unions ability to steal an election though.

    I hope they lose and lose all that money the unions wasted of their members money…Think if they used that money to actrually HELP their members instead of throwing it down the recall toilet….. What a bunch of turds

    Watch as the Democrats are going to blame the Republicans for racism accusing them for taking the highlight off the election for the violent race mobs that have been happening at the Wisconsin State Fair.

  • Mad Hatter

    I already heard the half man Rachael Madcow complaining about “dirty tricks” during her broadcast. That told me the Socialists aren’t expecting to have good election results, and they’re setting up for “voter fraud” and “underhanded tactics”.

  • ilikai

    At 9:10 CDT it looks like the GOP may have lost one race, lets hope thats all that gets lost.

  • Kate

    Nobody cheats and commits fraud like a Democrat in an election. They can’t win if they don’t cheat. Appalling.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Yep if its close at all at the end you can pretty much count on dem districts late reporting 100% for the democrat. If the dems dont pull this off it is a HUGE loss for the left.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Also Dems can lose next week if their base gets depressed they cant take senate.

  • Mad Hatter

    I’m not well versed on Campaign finance laws, but with MSNBC having all of the Wisconsin candidates on their network for interviews, with Ed Shultz having a pro Democrat rally behind him during his on site broadcast, isn’t this some form of Campaign Law violation?

    MSNBC is allowing the Democrat candidates to state their case, and no Republican candidates have been, thus MSNBC giving the Democrats free advertising time. Anyone have any knowledge if the Republicans would have a case against MSNBC for violating Campaign Laws?

  • JDStone

    Numbers looking awfully good to me so far. It aint over until the fat one sings though.Hopefully all these numbers are not all from the rural areas.

  • Downer

    As a Virginian, I’m with Sybilll. I’m captivated by the going-ons in WI. And with Kapanke in the 32nd down by only 2% with only 26% reporting, it’s very encouraging. It could be a clean sweep, and a big lift for conservative legislation.

    Weird how some districts are about done and others have barely started. Also, I am seeing large vote dumps for democrats were they suddenly get about 100% of the new votes counted .

  • Jimmy

    It’s all about 18…. GO FON DU LAC… They pulled for Prosser handily hope it goes that way this time around.

  • john b

    Looks like we will lose 3… as King has pulled ahead of Hopper in 18.
    I hope I am wrong.
    Sorry for the negativity

  • donh

  • Jimmy

    Fond Du Lac did not report any totals yet. However they went heavily for Prosser during the Supreme Court race.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Ah dems surging late. How unusual.

  • Jimmy
  • Bill Mitchell

    Hopper just retook the lead in 18 with 79% in.

  • Downer

    This site http://politisite.com/2011/08/09/wisconsin-senate-recall-election-results-tuesday-august-9-2011/ has the 14th’s incumbent Olsen back over Clark with 95% in. It’s a squeaker for control.

  • Listen, at all this Cheering, gee it make me step back and do some real thinking, What’s gona ha ppen to this Country now, you don’t want Big Government, but your willing to Sell your Souls to Big Business and be their slaves. Well lets just see what’s next to happen.

  • Mad Hatter

    The Dem has a good size lead in D8, and the GOP Candidate is up by 137 Votes in D18 with 87% of the votes in.

    Jim, if by some chance the Dems pull this out, your headline “KOCH WINS” will forever be your””Dewey Defeats Truman” moment.

    Wisconsin in past years has always been very liberal and very democrat. Seems America is feed up.

    And better days ARE coming because as I see it, when Wisconsin of all places realized they have had enough, so goes the Nation.

  • KOW

    In District 8, a close one for Darling, it shows Waukesha as 397-200 for Darling, but Prosser won the wards in District 8 by 8,820 to 3,446 out of 12,166 votes. So there are still a lot of outstanding votes for Darling there.

  • apodoca

    If Wisconsin is crazy enough to throw away two seats to the Democrats, bad bess to ’em. They have a chance for fiscal sanity but if they love the welfare state more than their own money, let ’em have it.

  • Speaking Clearly

    There’s a word the Democrats must be required to learn today: MANDATE.

    It means that the people – particularly Liberal people in Wisconsin, *reject* the progressive ideology. Pay careful attention RINOS and Progressives, as you’ve been schooled again. It’s apparent to all of us that you were skipping class on the 2010 elections – probably out shooting hoops and eating 1700 calorie burger lunches with Barack and Michelle. But you really need to pay careful attention now, since you’ve been schooled not once but twice.

    The people don’t want your delusional progressive crap. Besides the fact that it’s obviously unworkable to a first grader, it is worse than rubbing the cat fur backwards. It’s anti-individual, rejects the basics of human nature, remarkably fascist, and seeks to impose a totalizing view of the world upon everyone without their consent. In simple terms, the people know that you’re not much more than a fascist in hipster clothing.

    But understand further that there is this tidal wave of tea that’s surging, consisting of decent, hard working people. It’s a creative force, and once it resolves the farce of progressivism and eliminates its fascist presence once and for all (something we failed to do after WW-II), it’ll work toward bringing people off of the socialist plantation, off of the Animal Farm, past the feudal tyrannies inherent in the RINO and George Bush country club imperialism, and toward a path where a pragmatic realism and respect for the other resides.

    In simple words, you progressives are going down for good.

    And charles, adding to my reply,

    Ed Shultz sounds pretty somber and sounds like he’s not too optimistic as he was earlier. All of his Socialist guests are gone for the evening. The Union cheerleaders behind Ed seem like they have the air taken out of their sails.

    That doesn’t mean the Republicans have won D8, but body language and tone of voice says a lot.

  • Speaking Clearly

    John B: you are correct. I misread the results on my own link, because I was posting too fast, and read the district below it.

    I’ve seen elections, where the most popular senior Senator in the state, has their votes tallied way before all the other candidates. I’m sure sometimes there are favoritism games that are played, when reporting votes.

    Obama bought GM – with US taxpayer funds – to be corporate president and he is joined at the hip with GE Immelt who totally wrecked GE as an actual company and now is “economic advisor.” Obama eats lobster, $100 a pound imported steak and $400 wine as he is entertained by Hip Hop artists he pays with taxpayer funds. How come you say NOTHING about that? Week in and week out of that is living far above his stated salary. How come he can’t watch the expenses like everyone else? He’s MILLIONS over the line item budget for WHite House entertainment, which is MEANT EXPRESSLY for DIPLOMATIC usage, NOT PERSONAL perks.
    If he earned that money by his own corporate sales efforts, then okay, but it’s NOT his money. He sticks US with the bills… a form of slavery for US to repay that DEBT he and the Democrats MADE.

    Whoops! Well look at what we found in the bottom of this Open Society Institute container filled with ballots for the Wisconsin race: memos from our dear DHS Head Janet Napolitano, directed to the “General Wisconsin Conservative Public”. Curious:

    Dear Wisconsin Conservative:

    As you may well know, Wednesday August 9th is nearly upon us. As your DHS head, I wanted to reach out to you and let you know that your Department of Homeland Security it not only watching your every move and tracking your every purchase, but caring about how you safely spend those precious free time moments in these fleeting summer months. Recreation and personal safety are what this great agency is all about.

    Given a variety of possibilities of how you might spend your August 8th, we’d like to advise you on how you can share this day with your family in a safe, Obama Adminstration advised way. While you might hear of community activities like local chili feeds, recall elections, and other events on the civic calendar, I’d encourage you to instead explore one of the activities close to our President’s heart. Consider for instance:

    – Frequenting a local high-calorie gourmet burger joint
    – Getting in your 90th round of golf of the year
    – Jumping to a remote American destination on your personal 737
    – Building sand castles in your multi-million dollar, taxpayer paid Martha’s Vineyard resort villa

    There’s no end in sight for all the exciting things you could be doing this August 9! Be sure to live it up and style, and avoid those pesky places marked “Polling Station” as they’re only certain to have DHS cameras, pat-downs, involuntary renditions, drone-initiated targeted killings, and other completely legal but stressful frustrations lurking around the corner (and our dear friends at the IRS tell us that such locations certainly run the risk of those pesky tax audits).

    I’m sure you’ll join me in wanting to avoid DHS strip searches, IRS audits, invasive surveillance, credit history destruction, secret service database manipulation, “accidental” recurring detention, and other difficulties and would instead want to take our friendly DHS recommendations on how to spend a happy day filled with Hope and Change in beautiful Wisconsin!

    Sincerely,

    Janet “Snowball” Napolitano

    I have checked and rechecked Milwaukee, and it is my opinion that all the precincts are in.

    Good For WI & Gov. Walker!

    Just a note about Milwaukee County

    2011 SC race

    Prosser 13217
    Klopp 17216

    2011 Senate race

    Darling 10,088
    Pasch 18,579

    That is a decent swing, or more like 1,500 teachers not happy.

    Multitude: Make sure you come back and post, on November 6th of next year, and write a parody of what is going through Nancy Pelosi’s mind, as they lose the White House and Senate.

    Speaking Clearly,
    Libs and Dims alike have absolutely no concept of the word reality, thus they are left with one option, SPIN, and I stopped playing with tops a long long time ago.

  • KOW

    Wasn’t Hopper the one running around on his wife and there was accusations he did not even live in the district anymore? I guess if he was one of the ones gone, not much of a loss there.

  • Multitude

    Speaking Clearly/113: I’ll gladly do so. I’m excited to see decent, regular people waking up and taking their civic responsibilities for “cleaning out the crap” seriously. With respect to Pelosi, there’s remarkable irony, given her bizarre and nearly prophetic channeling of the tea party in her broom narratives.

    Imagine a world without these parasites, these hired hacks employed by the nation’s elites. This is why we all need to reject the RINO cautions that warn the tea party slave from departing from the plantation’s protections: “Why, if you vote for one of them tea party types, the devil master from the Democratic Party who whips you harder will arise and prevail.” It’s time we regard both RINO and Progressive for what they are: slave owners. Fascists. Indecent, unworthy, dishonest, and generally bad people.

    But I’m encouraged that honest Americans are awakening, realizing that through their complacency, they have some tapeworms that will take painful but necessary treatment to eradicate. Difficult immediate times are ahead, but we know it’s the best course for restoring us to health.

    I live in FL. I have been watching this very closely. There are two big stories here in my view.
    1st – The unions just pissed away $14 Million dollars of their members dues – Good!
    2nd – The American public is now engaged in the political process like never before. Thank you internet. This does not bode well for RINOs, and other legislators who have been pulling the wool over our eyes for so long. There is now nowhere to hide – Thank You blogosphere!

    Congrats WI Republicans!
    Fu*k off WI Democrats and your crooked union supporters.

    This is a victory for all of America! Thank you to all of those who worked for the Republican candidates. Yes, even in FL, we sincerely appreciate it!

  • Speaking Clearly

    I posted this yesterday. But a good story:

    From Politico:

    Biden warns Dems may lose Senate

    http://www.politico.com/politico44/perm/0311/early_alarm_dc6e3768-165a-440e-a76d-606e30c48c51.html

    Biden wrote that: “the stakes are highest” and that Democrats will be defending 23 seats in the next election, including five open ones.

    “Republicans only need to pick up four to take control of the Senate,” Biden wrote.

    From Wikipedia:

    “Democrats are expected to have 23 seats up for election, including 2 independents who caucus with the Democrats, while Republicans are only expected to have 10 seats up for election.”

    This means that Republicans need a net gain of just 4 Senate seats, out of 23 Democrat seats that can be challenged, to take control of the U.S. Senate.

    Advantage: Tea Party

    November 2012 is one year away.

    It’s time to start rolling up our sleeves and getting to work.

  • Rock

    People need to keep their eyes open with what ACORN or what ever acronym they are hiding behind are doing. WTF has already stopped any hope of a honest vote by stacking the Justice Department with pro Socialist allies.

    AP just called it for Darling! you can see the check mark by her name at the AP link above

    Hurray! Another win for good vs evil.
    The thieving Dems and their union socialist cronies got one in the kisser tonight.
    An expensive lesson. A win for the good people of Wisconsin!

    Mary – #39

    Go Fuc|< yourself.

  • KOW

    Just a note, as of now, the Republicans won by almost 20,000 votes, the Dems spent some $80 per vote they got.

    Rep 184,328
    Dem 165,130

  • RS

    Remember folks, Wisconsin is unions a “settled law” kind of place. They EXPECT to have to way. But despite the millions, they didn’t.

    This is a tremendous defeat for the left. A maximum effort in a “friendly” state has failed.
    On your knees folks and give thanks.

    Mary #39

    eh, the craziest post/er in here calling everyone else nuts, typical..

    poor Mary, just give her her Obama money Obama!! 😀

    The Republicans would do well to build on this.

    If government can be cut down to size in a blue state, then it can be cut down to size anywhere. (naturally, California would likely take more time, for obvious reasons…)

  • Redwine

    This big win gives me hope for Washington State. But, statewide and nationally, we MUST keep out the RINOs.

    We would to well to “isolate and freeze” Romney.

  • Mona

    For so NOT the first time, I am proud of my state! 🙂
    Prayers answered, and the battle continues…
    Thanks to all you good and decent voters, and to those who supported from afar.
    The grown-ups are back in charge.
    Good night.

  • SM-AZ

    Thanks WI conservatives! My home state made me proud to be a cheesehead! But, some of my inlaws are going to be hopping mad. On to Nov 2012—-we got to vote that socialist out and send him back to Chicago!

  • Gman

    Hey Mary, how do our asses taste?

  • Atlas Shrugged

    And now, Democrats’ accusations of fraud and recount demands in 3, 2, 1 ….

  • KT

    Recounts are guaranteed if a GOP candidate wins. Really, my Conservative friends, we have them on a scramble and it’s a beautiful thing to see. Let’s keep at them! We will WIN!!!!

    Mary#39,

    Dear, WE ARE THE MAJORITY! You are the nut.

    Kinda like when I took mom to the nut house.

    She thought all others were wrong. Mary, you

    Need help. Your world view is all wrong.

    Start by learning history then economics.

    Poor Mary, cheese done slid off her cracker!

    Lolololol. Gasp! Lololololololololololol

  • Rose

    Congratulations to the fine folks in Wisconsin! We are all so proud of you and happy for you – heaving huge sigh of relief! Psalm 91 Blessings on you folks!

    Remember the lesson that RINOS are not a safe vote when some of you try to get star-struck with Rick Perry. Don’t let him make you imagine that he is far from John McCain!
    Do your homework, regardless of how they “SOUND” – ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL!

  • Ella

    Congratulations Wisconsin! We are right behind you for November 2012! Hang in there folks! We can do it!

    YES WE CAN AND YES, WE WILL!!!

    Do you all realize you are posting under a banner that says “KOCH WINS”? and complaining about Union $? Good GAwd, people. I’m glad my visit here is accidental and fleeting. Now go back to your very odd altered state of reality. I hope the dose of irony didn’t overwhelm your highly tuned sensitivities.
