We're liveblogging the results of the final two Wisconsin recalls. The candidates are below:

SD-12: Jim Holperin (D-inc) vs. Kim Simac (R)

SD-22: Bob Wirch (D-inc) vs. Jonathan Steitz (R)

Results: AP | Journal Sentinel

7:57 PM PT: In case your just joining us, the AP called SD-22 for Dem Bob Wirch earlier this evening. SD-12 remains uncalled, but Dem Jim Holperin has a 53-47 lead with 71% of the vote counting. Our model suggests that lead is likely to widen by the end of the night.

7:58 PM PT: And... the AP calls it for Holperin! Two terrific Dem holds!

8:00 PM PT: And for those of you following this until the bitter end, it looks like two counties in SD-12 have been on a serious ganja break all night long: Absolutely zero votes have been reported in Florence and Lincoln.

9:05 PM PT (jeffmd): ...and a few hours later, Lincoln County reports, turning out 60% for Holperin. This brings us to 55.3% Holperin, or Holperin by 10.6%. Just Florence County left, which is the most Republican jurisdiction in the district.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
