We project Rebecca Dallet has won the Wisconsin State Supreme Court race, with over 400,000 votes counted and 33% precincts reporting her lead of 16% is not going to be reversed.— Decision Desk HQ (@DecisionDeskHQ) April 4, 2018
With 62% of the vote counted, Dallet's double-digit lead holding. 707,000 votes in.https://t.co/2oX29DMUDN— Decision Desk HQ (@DecisionDeskHQ) April 4, 2018
And this was even more impressively surprising. The GOP's power grab is going down by 20%.
Wisconsin voters reject eliminating the state treasurer's office, meaning it will stay.— Theo Keith (@TheoKeith) April 4, 2018
Which means I plan to announce my candidacy for the open Treasurer seat in 2 weeks.....HAHAHA! APRIL FOOLS', HONEY! (I'm a little giddy about things tonight).
And not only am I giddy, but I see real hope and a sense that things might really be changing for the good. Dane County confirmed its voting power to the state, as Dallet is winning the county by 80,000 votes on near-50% turnout, a margin that swamps the WOW Counties. The GOP tried the same playbook that has been successful for much of the 2010s - loads of dark money from corporations and the NRA, lies in the campaign, and BS dog-whistles about "rule of law." And it WENT DOWN AND WENT DOWN HARD. Hope WMC enjoyed their $1.5 million investment in that doofus Screnock.
Think Scott Walker and Paul Ryan and other right-wing slime are having another WAKE UP CALL tonight? They should be. Dallet just showed how you beat the dirty dark money - by exposing the slimeballs and taking them head-on.
November is coming, you grifting scumbags.
EDIT Gov UNINTIMIDATED is scared and melting down! And the hypocrisy in this act is both hilarious and pathetic
Tonight’s results show we are at risk of a #BlueWave in WI. The Far Left is driven by anger & hatred -- we must counter it with optimism & organization. Let’s share our positive story with voters & win in November.— Scott Walker (@ScottWalker) April 4, 2018
