  •  Technically there were 7 recalls (2+ / 0-)

    Democrats actually won three of these.

    1. Jessica King over Randy Hopper after his repeat DWIs
    2. John Lehman in a rematch over Van Waagaurd in a swingy district.
    3. Jennifer Schilling crushed two term incumbent and arch-conservative Dan Kapanke, who had somehow managed to hold onto a solidly Democratic district.

    Several of the other recalls were actually kept legitimately close, particularly against Alberta Darling.
