Now for the Good News

For nearly two years, liberal thugs have subjected Wisconsin to angry protests, lawsuits and perpetual elections. Yet after spending tens of millions of dollars in special interest money to defeat Governor Walker, his legislative allies and their reform agenda, they have exactly nothing to show for it.

Wisconsin Conservatives on the other hand, have significant cause for celebration.

In January 2011, the GOP held majorities of 19-14 in the state senate and 60-39 in the state assembly.  Special and recall elections in 2011 and 2012 cost the GOP a net of one seat in the assembly and 3 in the senate.  Last night conservatives flipped the state senate and grew our majority in the state assembly.  The final score for the GOP is 18-15 in the state senate and 60-39 in the assembly.

That means Governor Walker and the legislature have a mandate to pass pro-growth policies, like iron mining legislation, tax cuts, regulatory relief, and education reform.
Thanks to your support, once again Wisconsin Club for Growth played a pivitol role in last nights results. In the last three weeks alone, the Club aired over $1,500,000 in network televison ads in Green Bay to educate voters on the records of Senator Jessica King and Senator Dave Hanson. King cast the deciding vote to kill the mine in Northern Wisconsin and the 3,000 jobs that came with it. When you put politics ahead of creating good paying jobs for Wisconsin families, you should be prepared to lose your own.

The re-election of President Barrack Obama has conservatives across the country shaking their heads in disbelief.  But Wisconsin conservatives have reason to celebrate and a lot of work to do.
