    Oh that Big Blue Wave is a beautiful thing people! Let’s celebrate our victory today but there is a lot of work to do before November. Career Politician Walkerand republicans backed by their greasy out of state Dark Money and Big Corporate republican interest groups will do anything to maintain their ever-weakening grip on power. They have gerrymandered the state, tried to.block elections mandated by.the law, the Koch brothers and other billionaires will dump millions into the state as they have for years trying to buy up politicians like Walker and Screnock but we can and WILL overcome, just like we did last night. Republicans spent more money on this Supreme Court race than has ever been spent on one before, and they still LOST! Trump, Walker and republicans have awoken the sleeping giant which is the great majority of decent, honest, hard working, loving, caringbAmeticans who want NOTHING to do with their vile brand of hate, racism, misogyny, fear-mongering, resentment, anger and corruption.
    Come November we must take our state back and that means…


    The Big Blue Wave is REAL and it is a beautiful thing indeed!!

    The only clown show in Wisconsin is Walker and Republicans.

  3. Troll says:

    No good news for Republicans. Republicans were blown out. Walker is probably done and the Senate may go Democratic. Take your pick, Trump affect or Foxconn. Locally, Casey Shorts gave no credible reason to unseat Theo Lipscolm at least from a Republican stand point. Better the devil you know then the devil you don’t know.

  4. Randy W Thompson says:

    Really the wave is a tsunami that will leave the republican party decimated. These idiots who are suppose to be for the people hence republicans seem to be clueless about what the people want. We want wisconsin “preserved” not sold off to big corporations that only care about stripping our resources and giving little in return. We want fairness to the people really it means when you get negative feedback about a policy or law you should listen not just vote a party line that was won by manipulating borders to secure your own majortiy future. We want the party to focus on the people of the state that includes children. If you take billions from an education fund and only want to put it back in an election year you will loose. The list goes on and on. Wisconsinites want radical change and it involves taking a blue marker and coloring the state with it.

  5. PMD says:

    We agree about Shorts. Glad he lost. And while a blue wave is coming, I’m not convinced Walker is done until I see who his challenger is.

  6. JMac says:

    Don’t celebrate too soon. Dallet was the far superior candidate. That may have been THE factor.

    As a Wisconsin Independent, this was not a vote for big or small government, It was a vote for wanting to bring democracy back to Wisconsin. We want our votes to count—we don’t want gerrymandering on either side. We want transparency in government–we deserve to know the truth about the connections and influences in our government. We want solid experienced Supreme Court justices–not green, inexperienced appointees all from your appointments. We don’t want big money on either side, especially from outside the state (as you regularly go out to raise)–our state should be open for business, but it shouldn’t be for sale. To accuse independent voters like me with name calling and voting out of “hatred or anger” is pathetic for our state’s leader. You need to look in the mirror at yourself and those of us who are voting. While you may be a Republican, you still represent 100% of us and need to respect our votes and our voices.
