Wisconsin Fleebaggers Survive Recall Elections

Two of Wisconsin’s Fleebagger Fourteen survived a recall election. The Associated Press reports the following:

The Democrats targeted in Tuesday's election were among the 14 senators who fled the state in February in opposition to Republican Gov. Scott Walker's proposed legislation curbing public employees' collective bargaining rights.

Both won in recalls against Republican challengers.

Democratic Sen. Bob Wirch of Pleasant Prairie defeated Kenosha attorney Jonathan Steitz. Sen. Jim Holperin of Conover beat Republican Kim Simac of Eagle River, who was backed by the grassroots conservative tea party movement.

MSNBC didn’t provide the robust coverage on this recall election like they did on the Republicans last week. But did you expect anything less? Fox News again was remiss.
