Wisconsin Democrats need only three states to gain control of the State Senate. Republican incumbent candidate Alberta Darling holds one of these contested seats. She has served as Governor Scott Walker’s point person on budgets, and according to a recent interview, thinks that individuals who make over $250,000 per year should not be taxed, because they are small businesses, not rich people. Meanwhile, her opponent, Sandy Pasch, was in the capitol fighting against Scott Walker’s union busting agenda since the beginning.
John Nichols joins The Ed Show to say that Wisconsin’s recall elections will ultimately boil down to who was with and who was against Scott Walker.
