The constellation of elections taking place tonight make this Tuesday, arguably, far more important than SuperTuesday. In the previous post, I mentioned many of the elections going on today. There are even more recall elections going on…for a total of 17:
- Six in Wisconsin
- Three in Fullerton, California (with at least superficial relevance to Seattle)
- Three in Greenfield, California
- Five in Hermiston, Oregon
We’ll mostly focus on Wisconsin, but recall elections frequently have high drama and close votes tagging along. So grab a beer and popcorn, tune in to your media source of choice, and try to be entertained….
6:00: This page has a couple of sites livestreaming results tonight. However, I’m hearing something about the moon….
6:06: Dead heat in the exit polls…
6:18: With almost no precincts reporting…Walker leads Barrett 54% to 45%.
7:01: CNN projects a Walker victory.
7:20: Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch keeps her job. Which means, of course, that when Walker is indicted, Wisconsin will be left in the shitty hands….
7:29: On the bright side, it seems possible that Birfer-queen Orly Taitz will get the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D)
