I am pleased. But I’m not dancing, only because –
1) I’m terribly fatigued and
2) We know there is going to be a recount.
3) I wanted Joanne Kloppenburg to not just win, but *soundly* win.
BUT I know full well that what’s been pulled off by Joanne Kloppenburg and the people of Wisconsin is stunning.
Joanne was not supposed to make it this far.
I hope Joanne Kloppenburg and ther campaign team are feeling some pride in the midst of all of the other emotions they must be experiencing today.
By the way, I don’t blame either candidate for calling an inevitable recount. You’d have to be insane not to demand a recount when your opponent wins by around 0.01 percent of the total vote.
Here is a link to the laws and procedures governing recounts (I will be writing a summary in a bit): Election Recount Procedures from G.A.B.
And below is a map from the It’s Academic blog.
You know I want that whole state to be cobalt blue.
