John Lehman WI Senate Win Reins In Righty Excess

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

If John Lehman's unofficial numbers in Racine hold up, and Democrats recapture the State Senate, the brakes can be applied to some of the excesses that Walker and the Fitzgeralds pushed through in the last 15 months.
Former state Sen. John Lehman, D-Racine led state incumbent Republican Sen. Van Wanggaard, with 36,255 votes to Wanggaard's 35,476 votes, according to unofficial results with all precincts reporting.

Lehman declared victory shortly before 1 a.m.
