Wisconsin Sends a Message



Text  



Justice Prosser: “I’ve weathered the nuclear blast and I’m still standing.”

With Turnout nearly double normal levels for state supreme-court races, at nearly 1.5 million votes cast, Wisconsin’s silent majority sent a message yesterday. While the screaming union organizers in the streets got all the media attention and turned out every last liberal they could to the polls, it was not enough. Event with all their vitriol against Gov. Scott Walker, the Left could not even eclipse President Obama’s 2008 election margins in key liberal strong holds like Dane County (Madison) and Milwaukee. As we stand on the precipice of a recount, we can stand assured that even voters in a blue state like Wisconsin understand the role of a judge is one of judicial restraint and not to be a rubber stamp for the Left and union organizers.
