Wisconsin Gov. Walker wins recall race MIL
MILWAUKEE (MCT) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker became the first governor in the country’s history on Tuesday to survive a recall election.
NBC, CNN, Fox News and The Associated Press called the race shortly after 10 p.m. EDT. Exit polls for a time had shown the race at 50-50, but later showed Walker with a 4 percentage point lead.
The Republican governor held onto his seat in a rematch with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, whom Walker beat by nearly 6 percentage points in 2010. Turnout Tuesday was far higher than it had been 19 months earlier.
