This is the Democratic recall that Republicans had a chance to win, before shooting themselves in the foot. The result here is a landslide, but only because the favored GOP candidate fell 2 signatures short of getting on the ballot. The candidate that ended up on the ballot, Vanderleest, was one with a police record, and court actions against him. He didn't have a chance. Nygren should have done his job, gotten the signatures he needed, and gotten on the ballot. He could have knocked the Democrat out. This is one of the dumbest moves the GOP in Wisconsin, or any other state, has made in recent history.MILWAUKEE -- A Wisconsin state senator survived a recall election Tuesday that gave voters the most direct opportunity yet to react to a Republican-backed law that stripped most public workers of their collective bargaining rights.
