    from the Kloppenburg-Prosser race before you start talking about rural areas.

    The main part of the problem was in the Milwaukee suburbs.

    Kloppenburg did very well in many rural areas.

      The recall to watch will be Alberta Darling's, where she serves at the pleasure of Milwaukee's wealthy north shore suburbs. More money will be spent in this one race than all the others combined... most of it trying to defend Alberta Darling.

      Will Sandy Pasch be able to get her message out? That the vote will be cast in July when most of Darling's constituency may well be out-of-town at their summer homes could be a determining factor. What will the rich white folks do if they have to stand in line at the polls in the sweltering heat of Milwaukee's July?

      Bottom line, we've never had an election in July here in Wisconsin that I can remember. Last year in mid-July we had flooding rainfalls unlike ever before. Hope is Sandy Pasch's supporters will show up come hell or high water.
