Two or three seats turning Democratic seemed about right from the beginning.

I'd be wary of anything other than a clear lead for "generic Democrat". Kapanke does look doomed, and Hopper is in quite a bit of trouble as well. Beyond that I wouldn't count any of them as being in the bank for the Democrats.

I'd be pretty shocked if Hopper holds on: http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/03/13/wi-repub-lives-outside-district-with-mistress-says-wife/

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

The best part:

Quote
Blogging Blue also reports that Mrs. Hopper intends to sign the recall petition against her husband. The petition has already been signed by the family's maid.

LOL.

Senator Hopper's mistress got a job with the state of Wisconsin last month. Coincidence?

Someone posted a tweet on SSP saying that they have enough signatures to recall Randy Hopper now.

So how does this work on the ballot? Is there just a new election that the incumbent can run in? A new election that is valid only if a simultaneous recall question is approved?

Darling is next.

I have to agree. The open house at the Recall Darling Headquarters last night had well over 150 people there. The place was shoulder to shoulder packed.

In Wisconsin, once the petitions are certified, the recall has occurred. The subsequent election is like any other general election, unless more than one member of the out-party decides to run, then there is a primary and 8 weeks later, a general election.

So in theory the "recalled" official could decide to not even run?

isn't that how it is will all recall elections?  Gray Davis wasn't even on the ballot in his recall (though that was because he was supporting a "no" vote on the actual recall provision)

     Cruz Bustamante ran on the recall ballot while calling on people to vote against the recall, though. If Gray Davis were allowed to run, I imagine that he would have done so.

I'm amazed Kapanke ever got elected from La Crosse in the first place. He's a lockstep far righter, not moderate at all, and apparently made some type of comment comparing Walker to Jesus.
