Wisconsin Senate Recall Election Results Tuesday, July 19, 2011

August 9, 2011 results

Today is the second round of four in the elections of Wisconsin’s Recall Madness, and the first where things actually matter. In the 12th Senate District in northeast Wisconsin and in the 22nd Senate District in Kenosha County, there are rather well-contested Republican primaries, while in the 30th Senate District along the west shore of Green Bay, the election is the general election.

Because Assemblyman John Nygren (R-Marinette) inexplicably left himself with a thin enough margin on his nomination papers that the Democrat Party of Wisconsin and the Government Accountability Board were able to invalidate enough signatures to keep him off the ballot, the incumbent Democrat, Dave Hansen (Green Bay), is going up against the person who organized the recall effort against him, David VanderLeest to decide whether Hansen gets to continue to run away when bills his union paymasters don’t like are scheduled to come up to the Senate floor. To say that VanderLeest is not an ideal candidate is a vast understatement – he has a rather extensive court record that he chose to make part of his poorly-designed campaign website. His lack-of-fundraising looked a lot like the lack-of-effort from the “protest” candidates the Republican Party of Wisconsin ran in the Democrat primaries last week, as he raised as of the last “late contribution” report on 7/12 $6,000 (which has to go up against $243,000 that Hansen had on hand as of July 4). A DailyKos/PPP poll had Hansen up 62%-34%. However, I do note that all three Assembly districts that make up the 30th Senate District are represented by Republicans, and VanderLeest’s group did manage to get 15,540 signatures to force the recall election.
