Wisconsin Recall Election
Over one year ago, the people of Wisconsin set out to take their state back. The people took to the capitol and demanded answers from their newly elected Governor. Governor Walker ignored their pleas and disregarded their concerns, so the people commenced to giving him a thorough lesson in democracy. Last August, the first set of recall elections took place and the Republicans managed to keep four of the challenged senate seats, maintaining control of the state senate. Today we've reached a crossroad and its up to the people of Wisconsin to decide what direction they want to go - Incumbent Governor Scott Walker or his 2010 challenger Tom Barrett.
The polls have been closed for 52 minutes and NBC is projecting that Governor Scott Walker has survived the recall election.
