Everyone who cast a ballot. Record turnouts across the country show a renewed passion for participation.
Democrats. I'm not sure you can call it a landslide but it looks like a stampede from here.
Sauk County. Not only did they have the sense to elect a good man in the 50th, they also had the presence of mind to replace Doc with Fred Clark.
Brett Davis. In a year when the letter "R" was toxic Davis increased his MoV to 3700 votes this year after two squeakers.
Kim Hixson. Since he won't need the recount this year he can bequeath it to Trish O'Neill who'll want it to find those last 32 votes.
Evansville. A 1000 vote margin gives a clear mandate for restoring the lake. This should end the equivocation and tentativeness.
Cate Zeuske. Now she's facing months of job hunting for her husband. Can you imagine John Gard in his bathrobe hanging around your kitchen table smelling of Old Spice and flopsweat?
Movement Conservatives. It looks as if Grover Norquist and the Newtster have succeeded only in making the Reoublican Party small enough to drown in the bathtub.
Challengers. It was another incumbent year in the Assembly with only Hines losing his seat.
