All tied--bottom of the 8th.
Senator Pam Galloway (R) has resigned her Senate seat. She was facing a recall, but says her decision was based on family illness not the recall. So the Senate is now split down the middle 16-16. After the recall it will be 17-16. Donna Seidel was challenging her and will be on the ballot. She is the odds-on favorite to win the seat.
Take this development and add it to comments from Scott Walker the other day: "My wife would like me to return to the private sector so I could make some real money." One conclusion would be that Republicans are battle fatigued. No time to waste.
See you on the 25th. A good opportunity to regroup. Come and get your tin cup. So far nearly all candidates will be there to convince you.

It's interesting how the family values Republicans, Pam Galloway and Michelle Litjen, when they leave the legislature always use the excuse that their families come first.
First we had Michelle Litjen announce that she was leaving to spend more time with her family--elected in 2010 and actually served less than 14 months before announcing she was leaving at the end of her first term.
Was her family not the most important thing to her when Litjen ran? Yet when you read Litjen's announcement if you didn't know better, she almost single-handed cured all the problems facing Wisconsin. My God, it probably took her the first six months to find the women's can in the capitol.
Obviously like Rush, Pam Galloway and Michelle Litjen were only on loan to us from God. That being the case, one can come to the conclusion that if this is the best material God has to send us, God is a real prankster!

Thank you for mentioning the comment of Walker's wife. Have not seen or heard any mention of that
on any other news channel or outlet.
b. Battle fatigue? Let's hope so.
