MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican Gov. Scott Walker has easily defeated token opposition in a GOP primary in a recall election that has become a nationally watched battle over union rights.
Preliminary results from Tuesday's primary show Walker beat protester Arthur Kohl-Riggs with 96 percent of the vote.

Just more evidence of phony recall petition signatures.
Barrett just spoke and I have little pukes in my throat. He is asking for Kumbayah and working together. baloney. The dems stopped Walker from doing everything he wanted to do.
This is costing the state of WI $8M and all the towns etc have to pull it somewhere because it was not in their budgets.
i said it a year ago and i’ll say it again. Walker for President!
this is how and around who you can “unite” true conservatives.
This was just a primary and the GOP opponent was some nutcase so 95% is about right.
June 5 is the day of the recall election between Mayor Tom Barrett and Governor Scott Walker..
But we are working hard here in WI. and appreciate all of the support from around the country.
We know that so many of you are praying for Scott’s victory. As Wisconsin goes, so goes the country.
Down with the union goons!
is my beer math correct that more pubbies turned out for a no brainer primary than ‘rats turned out for the contested one? Woo boy - next month could be fun!
Wisconsin Freeper ping here. Many Florida Freepers like me are hoping Scott Walker keeps on keeping on!
Good job - I'd say that deserves another...beer that is!
Scott Walker 58.6%
Tom Barrett 90.5%
Scott Walker 52.3%
Tom Barrett 46.5%
Scott Walker 97%
Tom Barrett 58%
Tom Barrett was just elected as mayor and is already spending his time campaigning again for a different office. Isn’t it about time that Milwaukee RECALLS Tom Barrett?
Thanks for the ping
And I’m sure every Dem running will count that as taxpayer money that Walker allegedly “wasted” as governor!
Yes, but the GOOD part is that Walker got more votes than the top 2 dems combined. By a good margin. 600K Dem to 613K Walker.
Now, I will say that over all the dims got more than Walker and his bogus challenger.
But, let’s face it, this part of the process didn’t affect Walker. I don’t even know what would have happened if he’d had a real opponent (on the R) side and lost to that person.
Plus, we don’t know if any sizeable amount of Rs crossed over to vote for the weaker candidate Falk today.
It may be close, but we are all pulling for you Gov. Walker!
GO SCOTT WALKER GO!
It’s costing the state (us) a bundle for the recall. These are NOT regularly scheduled elections.
Wisconsin has an open primary, correct?
I was just reading a comment on another post that thinks Dems could’ve switched & voted for Walker just to give a false narrative..
NEXT: THE commie & union-thug supported Democrat Party candidate and cannon-fodder candidate.
If the leftists lose, they will have spent over $40MILLION for nothing. Now that was a nice job stimulus plan.
Now what are they gonna do — recall the recall vote?
Look for lib violence and mayhem as a result of this. The goons aren’t going to take this well, I hate to predict.
