Well, Scott Walker will still be governing Wisconsin tomorrow morning. About ten minutes ago, Fox News called the Wisconsin recall election for Scott Walker. With 41% of the vote in, Walker has 59% of the vote compared with 41% with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
I don’t know if Walker will end up winning by 18 points but I think the margin of victory is beyond our wildest imaginations. But now there’s no ambiguity. It is very clear that a critical majority of the people of Wisconsin are behind both Governor Walker and his budgetary reforms.
Of course, it remains to be seen if this support for Walker will translate into support for Mitt Romney in November. A lot can happen in five months. But the seeds have been planted and they have begun to germinate in Wisconsin and beyond.
UPDATE: It’s midnight and with 92% of the vote counted, Walker has a nine point lead over Barrett (54% to 46%). While it’s not as high as the margin from earlier in the evening, it remains a decisive victory for Walker and a vote of confidence for the measures he has implemented. It also exceeds his margin of victory over Barrett in 2010.
