Wisconsin Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg beat Justice David Prosser in Wisconsin’s Supreme Court race. Record voter turnout created this upset despite Prosser’s lead and campaign funding from outside interest groups.
Prosser’s defeat is viewed as a referendum on Gov. Scott Walker and his heavy handed approach to public employees unions and favors to private industry. A recall may not be far behind. Governors in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and elsewhere should take note.
