THE GOP HAS ALREADY WON:
Wisconsin Supreme Court Race Remains Tight (Sean Sullivan, April 6, 2011, Hotline)
The high-stakes Wisconsin Supreme Court race remained very tight early Wednesday morning, without a declared winner.
At the time of this post, state Supreme Court Justice David Prosser led Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg by just under 2,000 votes: 727,440 - 725,534, with 98 percent of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press.
Prior to the voting, the Left's operative theory of this race was that it would be a rebuke to the most radical governor in American history. Instead, it's within the margin of error, even in a state they consider "progressive." The GOP just got the green light for budget cuts and civil service reform everywhere.
