As I followed the 2012 recall election results, Door and Trempealeau quickly became bellwether counties for me. In 2010, Walker barely won Door County (50.0% to 48.5%) but collected 57% of the vote in the recall. He barely lost Trempealeau County (49.2% to 48.9%) but collected 57% vote in the recall.
The same general pattern held in his 2014 re-election. Both counties reported their tallies early, and both ended up in Walker's column. At that point, I knew the election was over for Mary Burke.
In yesterday's Supreme Court primary, Kloppenburg beat Bradley in Door County by 46.6% to 39.2%. She beat Bradley in Trempealeau County by 54.3% to 38.4%.
I'd say things are not looking good for Walker's 3-time judicial appointee. And I'm looking forward as Bradley continues her "very positive campaign".
