Big Milwaukee Vote Can Tip Election To Barrett

Milwaukee is the Wisconsin municipality with the most Democrats, but where turnout sometimes disappoints.

If the turnout merely approaches...approaches, not even equaling, but just approaches the 2008 Presidential election total for Barack Obama, Walker will be defeated Tuesday night.

Turnout is crucial in every village, town and city statewide, of course, and Madison's will go a long way in blunting heavy GOP voting in ultra-red Waukesha/Ozaukee/Washington Counties - - but Milwaukee is the big opportunity Democrats must seize today to win back the Governor's office.

Walker's 7:1 fund-raising advantage has not translated into much movement in the polls. He won with 52% in 2010, but Democrats can overcome that margin and negate Walker's money advantage if they can get their Milwaukee supporters to the polls today.

Tom Barrett has done his job in a short campaign with fewer resources than his opponent.

Now it's up to Democratic activists and voters to finish the job, and give Walker some payback for running down Milwaukee in a divide-and-conquer play for out-state votes.

On, Wisconsin...and Go Milwaukee.

Go Milwaukee! Especially after Walker has done nothing but insult, denigrate, and try to isolate and punish the biggest city in the state he supposedly governs. His contemptible behavior in this regard, trying to divide and conquer instead of unite and serve, needs to receive the reward it deserves.
