(CNN) - In a vote with possible presidential election implications, Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin will survive a bitter recall effort, CNN projected Tuesday night.
Democratic Mayor Tom Barrett of Milwaukee, hoping to unseat Walker, led early in Dane County, home to Madison, and Milwaukee, according to the county clerk's website.
Milwaukee is in Milwaukee County, not Dane, vet your information before posting it.
what a sickening tragedy....for those who VOTED for Walker are just really stupid and allowed for themselves to be bought and paid for.
Might it have something to do with the economy?
unions are toast.....government workers need to pull the weight like the rest of the working folks....obama is in deep do do...
Mayor Barrett – what did you mean "let's go get 'em"? Who are you referring to?
How can the people vote against their own best interests? I will never understand. I wish you well Wisconsin, you're going to need it.
Over 800,000 people voted for Barrett...was that not enough votes for CNN to feel he was worthy of having his concession speech televised?
Looks like Karl Rove has bought another election with concealed Money from the Saudi royal family.
The people have spoken. Now the rest of the country has to respect their decision. You may scratch your head in amazement, but you need to respect their choice.
It looks like PT Barnum was correct – there's one born every minute.

What a "slap in the face" for democracy!!! Wisconsin just allowed BIG CORPORATIONS decide our elections – Wisconsin was ground zero and now USA is ground ZERO!!! Out of the top 10 BIG CORPS that paid for the election in WI – 7 of them are Republican-driven – The three unions that are left to fight for the middle class are now DEAD!!!
Obama 2012 – The Only Trusted Way Forward!! He was elected because of the "Fierce Urgency of NOW and NOW I see why!!!
This is what the old farts in the scotus have done to this country. The money collected (most of it from out of state!) for walker was over $30M – Barrett, who came in late to the party, collected almost $4M.
This is why we need to go out and vote in November. Money can't buy us another teapublikan candidate like it did the shrub in 2000!
