Wisconsin's Third Recall Election

As it stands, yesterday was the last election in this round of recalls. Whether or not Governor Walker will be recalled waits to be seen, but this should be the last recall election for a while at least.

Last night two Democratic state senators, Robert Wirch and Jim Holperin, both managed to hold onto their seats. (They were among the 14 Wisconsin state senators who left the state earlier this year.) This means the gains made last week stand today. Even though the state senate is still controlled by Republicans, the margin is so small (17-16) things should prove to be interesting.
