They didn't manage to gain control of the Republican Controlled State Senate, to do that they would have had to take three seats, and hold on the two more in another special election in a few days.. More importantly, they didn't get the hoped for backlash against the TEA Party. Something I'm sure concerns the current resident of the White House
Republican Scott Walker and the newly elected GOP lead State Legislature not only engaged in and won a Historic/Epic battle with the unions earlier this year. The unions clearly wanted unsustainable spending and job loss to continue while the GOP, under Walker’s leadership, wanted a new direction that would result in prosperity for Wisconsin.As reported a few days back, 150,000 jobs were lost in the three years leading up to Walker’s inauguration. Since Walker took over, Wisconsin has gained 39,000 jobs. In fact, 9,500 new jobs came in June alone! The state was also facing a $3.5 billion deficit… Walker has since balanced the budget.
