AP results link
|A. Darling (i)
52-48 Darling 79% reporting ...
Wow..What a roller coaster ride!
Darling , Alberta (i) GOP 30,394 52%
Pasch , Sandra Dem 27,766 48%
ok there we go!
True. I wish he had. Too late for that now. The leaders of the WI State Senate GOP should have been involved. It would have been perfectly right for them to have showed him the door and informed him that he would no longer be as influential as he was before if he stayed. We need to develop a culture where that is an automatic whenever a leader in the community does that sort of thing. It is best for every party involved.
AP Caught up Darling ahead by 2600!
Would you post the link to that?
Now isnt that just DARLING!!
Pasch is toast. We win 4-2.
I actually woke up and jumped to this thread.. My spidey sense is tingling.. OOOH EXCITING!!
Deja Vu, Waukasha!
(RATS: SURELY she wouldn’t pull this AGAIN!>!)
Surely AP didn’t ignore Waukesha AGAIN??
I do too, unfortunately the Republicans in Washington don’t. But Remember, the Rats still run Milwaukee County I’m sure and could do it right back by reporting erroneously and correcting later or finding ballots in the days to come. Darling will need a nice lead to avoid these pitfalls.
Has all of Milwaukee reported?
Do you have a link to that?
Holey Moley! The numbers on AP just refreshed, and that was a massive jump. I pray to God that it sticks that way.
What precincts are out in Milwaukee? Are they rat leaning?
Mike Tate, the Dem Chairman is accusing the Waukesha County Kathy Nicholas of fraud and claims their attorneys are looking into it all ready! Wow, the dems are always thinking one step ahead if there is any possibility of them losing.
That is a pretty hard number to overcome. MSNBC is reporting Pasch down 48 to 52. Darling will win it.
Thanks to everyone giving reports of the reaction from MSEATMYSHORTS. I just can’t bear to change the channel.
Now we need one pickup next week to negate that asshat Schultz.
She would pull that again. And don’t call her Shirley.
Maddow and DEM WI State Senator now spouting the “Can’t we all just get along” mantra ...
Were in toruble
Waukesha has reported 10 of 11 precincts.....Milwaukee still has 12 precincts outstanding. Darling may lose:
State Senate - District 8 - General
County Precincts S. Pasch
(Dem) 27,766 48% A. Darling (i) 30,394 52%
Milwaukee 39/51 18,579
Ozaukee 7/11 2,138
Washington 9/9 2,887
Waukesha 10/11 4,162
Perhaps, but then again, they aren't FReepers. :)
Glad the results went our way (again) tonight.
Shirley you jest ...
Hopefully, none of the GOP wins will be close enough to warrant a challenge.
This will demoralize the Dems and make it possible to pick off one of the two Dem recall elections next Tuesday.
Careful here folks. The remaining precincts are from Milwaukee save one from Waukesha
How this played out could’ve affected what the unions try in your state next.
Nah! The truth is communism is crap. Wisconsin said so.
This is SWEET deja!
Would that some wise election officials would hold back some counts as was done with the Prosser election. It’s the only way to keep the process blind to the Demoscum.
Still four left in Ozaukee.
There is very little of the city of Milwaukee in Darling’s district. The Milwaukee county areas remaining are apparently in the village of Brown Deer.
Darling still has much of the very conservative Mequon and a precinct in Menomonee Falls.
ELECTION: Darling expects Waukesha Co. results to take an hour http://bit.ly/nkk0UB
No. 39/51 precints.
The MSDNCers are livid because they know they weren't successful tonight.
Maddow and the Dem are now begging the moderate Republican to switch seats or "work with the Democrats".
If Darling wins and the GOP holds the Senate, this will be a huge defeat for the unions and they know it. Yes, they won 2 seats, but one was expected and the other was incredibly close.
State Senate - District 8 - General
August 09, 2011 - 11:12PM CT
Wisconsin - 66 of 82 Precincts Reporting - 80%
Darling , Alberta (i)
Pasch , Sandra
Alberta Darling is up by about 3,100 votes, but the most of the remaining precincts are in the Milwaukee area.
I am not a jest. And don’t call me Shirley. :p
My Leslie Nielsen jokes are done for the night. To those providing updates an WI tonight, I just want to say thanks, and good luck ... we’re all counting on you. :)
fivethirtyeight Nate Silver by SykesCharlie Darling (R) now ahead in WI-SD8 after votes from Waukesha County. MKE votes still out, but Pasch (D) will probably be ~1800 votes short.
They see it now. They followed Obama’s lead. They can try again in 25 or so years.
