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.

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.
I think Tea Party Express was there working with Walker.
I am very optimistic about Scott Walker's re-election in June.
Kathleen Falk, who was the union choice, went down in flames. Good to see!
It aint over until the actual recall election in June. It’ll be tighter than hell maybe a recount. If Barrett wins I’m moving to Missouri.
The unions and those seeking the recall (uh hem, the WH!) should be responsible for paying for the recall election as Gov. Scott Walker was elected to a 4 year term with a wide majority of votes and they are seeking to throw him from office.
Think how many of starving children this would have fed /sarc
Or school teachers salary it would have paid...
For a morning LOL check out the “D” con from Texas that ran against Obummer.
It was in the West Virginia primary......Bible bearing, gun totters unite!!!!!!!!
And NC news today!
Liberals do not want liberty for anyone. They would rather dictate what we do, what we buy, where we go and when, and what we can do while there. Please donate.
The Republic you save may be your own.
But the MSM told me the Tea Party was out of steam.....
What is that faint whistling sound I am hearing that is getting louder.....?
It was a terrific night for conservatives! Go, Tea Party!
Hmmm. I wonder if there could be legal action brought against the SEIU and AFL-CIO to recover those costs?
Bump for later read .................................. FRegards
The recall election is scheduled for June 5. I predict Walkter 53-47% over Barrett....which is just about where their race for governor ended up in Nov 2010. The unions are not excited about Barrett and were pushing hard for Falk. I am concerned for the 4 state senate recall races on June 5, because I think that is where the unions will be targeting most of all, in order to stalemate the WI legislature....if they win just one senate seat, then the demTurds will control the WI senate and the GOP will control the Assembly. And the demTurds will block any & all legislation for the next 2 years, and then blame it on Walker & the Repubs. The dems are RAT bastard turds & traitors.
Lest you forget, the RATS used all their ammo on this. If Walker wins and the Republicans hold, they should go after all the Democrat seats in a recall.
What are they going to do, cry it isn’t fair?
So why is it that Repubs can only muster 4 recalls against the 14 RAT bastards who ran like cowards & left the state?
Well, one of the main reasons is that because of the massive union influx of demoRATs, all they have to do is to put out a few phone calls and they can instantly have 10-20,000 protestors/petition gatherers/signers on any given weekend. Conversely Repubs have other things they enjoy doing with their lives other than non-stop politics, and as a result it is a much harder process to gather enough signatures to force a recall. Plus the union thugs are in full force, harassing & bullying both the petition gatherers as well as those people who sign the petitions. It is not far fetched at all, to see your house or vehicle or property targeted by union thugs, if you sign a recall petition against the demTurds or go out to gather signatures. And the police & judges & Government Accountability Board, close their eyes or look the other way.
So the bottom line is, the 14 cowardly RAT bastard demTurd traitors who ran like cowards from the state, have only had 4 timid recalls against them last year, and the Repubs have now had 10 recalls of their 19 senators and lost 2 of them. 4 of the 10 are part of this June 5 recall, and I am afraid that we will possibly lose 1 or more of these recall elections. UNLESS however, the WI GOP voters & independents really turn out on June 5 recall election and resoundingly thump the demoRAT challengers. Obviously we need to win the June 5 recall election against Scott Walker(and his Lt Governor Rebecca Kleefish) but if the Repubs lose only one more recall, the state legislatures will be deadlocked between a Repub Assembly vs demoRAT senate. And of the Repub senators not on the recall last year or this year is a vote for demoRATs normally about 60% of the time. I think his name is Schultz or something like that. He needs to be recalled and replaced with a solid Repub conservative state senator.
So that's the long & short of it! Pray like crazy (& contribute if you can) that the unions & demTurds will be resoundingly defeated in all the recall elections coming up on June 5, 2012
