43. Not a swing back in the least.
In fact, Kapanke nearly defeated a Dem congressman 10 months ago.

Kapanke and Hopper lost, not because of personal issues or some other flaw but because their very heavily republican districts have, in fact, a strong labor presence. Prisons, manufacturing, etc.

The rest haven't faced serious challengers (if at all) in their hugely safe districts in decades. Last night, Dems were breathing down their necks for the first time.

Republicans all over this state, including Walker, are shitting political bricks this morning.

If you're going to keel over and call it all a waste this early in the game, maybe you need to rethink your career in politics.
