Gonna be a helluva fight for SC in April.
Roggensack cleaned house in the primary.
Madison - State Supreme Court Justice Patience Roggensack and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone cleared a three-way primary Tuesday, according to unofficial results, setting them up to face one another in the April 2 general election for a 10-year term on the court.
Eliminated from the contest was consumer attorney Vince Megna, who ran a quirky campaign in which he declared himself a Democrat, pilloried the high court and condemned the Republican agenda.
The Associated Press called the race for Roggensack and Fallone at about 9:20 p.m. Full results were not in, but with more than 40% of precincts reporting, Roggensack had a lopsided lead. A win with a wide margin would give her momentum heading into the general election.
Roggensack has the backing of Republicans and their traditional allies, and Fallone enjoys the support of Democrats and labor unions.

3. Saw that...
we've got some work to do...
on another note:
Eight people running for two seats on the local school board...the tea party stacked the ballot with 4 or five candidates...two sane candidates made it through (both top vote-getters) but the two biggest tea bagging idiots finished 3rd and 4th. The margin is close enough where if the baggers coalesce, they might defeat the sane party...this is getting serious.

Now the tea baggers will publish info about who signed the recall. This is their modus operandi. It sends out signals to all their tea bagger friends who not to vote for.
