OOPS, NEVERMIND:

In Wisconsin Recall Fight, Republicans Hold the Line (Adam Sorensen, August 10, 2011, TIME)

National advocacy groups funneled tens of millions of dollars into nine races, seven of which have now been decided, turning a parochial skirmish into an all-out proxy war between Tea Partying conservatives and labor-backed liberals. But the historic recall effort, launched in the wake of intense union protests in February and March, ultimately fell one seat shy of reestablishing Democratic control of the state senate.

There is no political price to pay for the war on public unions.
