    ...would you also include the percent results for the incumbent from the last election, please? I'd love to know at a glance just how much progress has already been made against the incumbent since s/he has been in office.

    There are two political aisles: Center-Left and Center-Right. It's impossible to cross them both. Republicans know this and govern accordingly; Democrats don't.

      This shows the margin of the wins for all the senators last time.

    •  I don't think that information is so helpful (3+ / 0-)

      For instance, Luther Olsen and Rob Cowles were both unopposed the last time they ran.

      •  However, in Darling's 8th District (0+ / 0-)

        where she has served for 20 years, she barely won by only 1 percent last time -- against Rep. Sheldon Wasserman, who was and is closely identified with his replacement, Rep. Sandy Pasch, who is Darling's challenger now.

        Sheldon has been working hard for Pasch again, as he did then.  And he is openly promising us that if we can get Sandy into the State Senate in two weeks, he will run for her seat, his old seat -- so fyi, the fight to take back Wisconsin could continue after the Senate recalls with Assembly races.  Keep those checkbooks open!
