Governor Scott Walker won his recall vote in Wisconsin. He not only won, but he cleaned the clock of his opponents. He beat Democratic challenger Tom Barrett and he beat unions -- municipal, private, state and national -- who sent money and people.
He won despite a greater voter turnout than in 2010 and also by a greater margin of victory. He won by more than the margin of polling error, he won by more than the margin of fraud. If you do not think same-day registration and voting, as Wisconsin allows, lends itself to fraud, you are wrong.
You are being told that Walker won by outspending his opponents. Not quite true. He did spend more money, but if you count the manpower shipped into Wisconsin by the unions, the spending evens out. Time is money. What won were ideas.
