The 8th district seems to be going R at this hour, with a lot of huffing and viewing with alarm about Waukesha County’s recurring ineptness at vote reporting. Three flips would have been fantastic, but turning two out of six solidly Republican districts and putting the senate into a one-vote R majority is no small thing. Remember that all the Republican Wisconsin legislators are going to be looking at these recalls, and the fairly close results in two or three other contests, for months, as the overall R polling drifts toward D and election results regress towards the mean. I think this was a very good night, and I think Walker is in serious trouble in his upcoming recall next winter.
