Tidal Wave About to Hit Wisconsin?



Text  



Votes for Republican Mark Neumann, former congressman, who came in second with 38.7 percent of the vote in his party’s gubernatorial primary: 237,755.

Votes for Democrat Tom Barrett, mayor of Milwaukee, who won his party’s gubernatorial nomination with 90.5 percent of the vote: 210,886.

In other words, Republican Milwaukee county executive and winning Senate* gubernatorial nominee Scott Walker’s vote was 1.7 times that of Barrett. 

About 233,000 Democrats voted in yesterday’s Wisconsin gubernatorial primary; about 614,000 Republicans did.
