    Scott Walker wins again in Wisconsin

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker survived a challenge from Democrat Mary Burke on Tuesday, the Republican’s latest political triumph that sets the stage for a likely 2016 presidential bid.
    With about two-fifths of precincts reporting, Walker led 57 percent to 42 percent, and The Associated Press called the race.

    Wow! That one surprises me. In a good way.

    I think Rauner is going to rout Quinn in Illinois too.

    Which is good if Rauner takes a stand on budgetary issues and unions, but anything more than that ...

    The unions attempted power grab is becoming a distant memory.

    Looks like it's going to be almost a sweep.

    Walker will never be President, though.

    With the Walker victory my Facebook feed has been flooded with people who claim they will now be moving out of Wisconsin.
