This election is important nationally too. If Kloppenburg is elected the Wisconsin mandate by the electorate in 2010 in this state will be negated by the WI Supreme Court and the unions will have won.
I live in a hardcore conservative area and discovered today that my Prosser yardsign was mutilated and thrown into one of my plantings.
Pray for Wisconsin and for Prosser's election!

VOTES BY COUNTY
I completely forgot about that WI was voting on this today. Keep those of us in other states updated, and thanks for the thread!
The counties of the city and around Madison will be the last to report.
The decent people better fight back or the unions will be running the show and WI will be bankrupt.
I wouldn’t put any real stock in early polling data (if it’s out there). In my opinion/experience most conservatived minded people work during the day and don’t get to the polls until after work. I’m guessing if there is early data, it would probably tip in the Kloppenberg direction.
This is very important for the nation.
I am surprised it is not an ethics violation for a Supreme Court candidate to make a promise like this.
There is a new focus on unions. They could win because they use the billions from tax payers back against them.
Is there a web site posting the returns? When do the election sites close?
I’ve got a dollar bet on the outcome...I hope I lose.
Judge Prosser came by the phone bank I was at today. He seemed upbeat. A guy next to me who’s on the volunteer staff said that Wauwatosa and Brookfield have very strong turn outs which is good for our side.
Making calls, I was surprised that they had us calling numbers in Milwaukee for the Country exec race. That tells me that they think things are looking good.
You can bet that the union knuckledraggers and their “useful idiots” from the local colleges have already printed up and filled out enough “ballots” to put that horse-faced, Nazi biatch, Kloppenburg, over the top.
Thanks for starting the thread.
This election is critical for Wisconsin, as a liberal majority on the Supreme Court (if Prosser loses) would mean big trouble for all of Gov. Walkers reforms.
But it’s also critical nationally - because this is the first indication of where a narrowly divided state like Wisconsin will fall - with the union/hippie/protester/liberal/thugs? Or with the new conservative majority that swept into statewide victory last November?
Not true. Most of Madison will report early to fabricate a trend. Rural areas to the north will take longer.
The Walker machine is watching fraud very carefully.
Is this accurate?
Served 12 years on the bench as Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice
Prior to serving for the supreme court Justice Prosser served 18 years in the legislator
Served 2 years as Outagamie County District Attorney
Served 2+ years in the United States Dept. of Justice
In all these roles Justice Prosser has created, applied, and interpreted law and received high marks for his performance in every category.
“I present myself as a judicial conservative, devoted to the constitution and the rule of law. My job is to find the law and apply it properly, not to make it up to advance some ideological objective.”
In 12 years, Justice Prosser has participated in more than 900 published Supreme Court decisions and has written opinions in almost every area of law. His record for impartiality and scholarship is well known to people who closely follow the work of the court.
IIRC, they should be closing at 1900.
BTW....nice tag line, brother.
And...yes. I am locked and loaded.
Polls close in an hour, usually results are reported quickly after that.
I read earlier on NRO that UW students in Madison were NOT storming the polling locations, which is certainly good news if true.
From what I’ve read,voter turnout is higher than expected.
