After a summer of outside money and fake candidates, Wisconsin’s historic recall elections are finally over. Despite the media’s coverage of the "failed recall elections," the actual numbers show that Democrats won five seats while Republicans won four…an overall victory for Democrats. Not only is the state Senate only one seat away from having a Democratic majority, but one of the moderate Republicans currently in the senate was against Scott Walker’s union busting agenda. In other words, Wisconsin has a pro-union state Senate.

The Nation‘s John Nichols joins The Ed Show to discuss what the victory means for Scott Walker’s anti-union political agenda.
