Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's strategy to stop the long string of Republican losses in special elections is simply to stop calling special elections. But Democrats are fighting back. According to Reuters, the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC) is suing to force Walker to hold special elections in state legislative districts vacated by Republicans appointed to the governor's administration. Walker previously refused to call special elections for Assembly District 42 and Senate District 1, claiming that the state House term was almost over and it could wait until the midterms.
But there is obviously an ulterior motive. Walker is afraid he'll lose these GOP-leaning seats, as happened in January when Democrat Patty Schactner flipped the heavily rural, pro-Trump Senate District 10. At the time, Walker referred to that special election as a "wake up call."
Here's hoping that the Evil Right and the Evil Rights Movement are extinguished this year.
The Republican governor is afraid to hold necessary elections because Republicans might lose?
Sounds like the ultimate in voter suppression. Don't even give the People the chance to vote.
Everything goes in cycles. I'll be glad to see when that douche of a governor gets flushed. Still can't believe Democrats put up the same loser during the recall election that lost to him in the previous one. WTF were they thinking?

Answer: It was the best they had. Just like Hillary the two time loser was the best they had. Pretty basic
And Trump is the best that Republicans have.
I would take Hillary any day.
#6 I'm sure you would but she lost which means she was the loser. Back to my point, get better candidates. Basic
#6, #&, Hillary lost the electoral college, not the popular vote, by only 77,000 votes out of 150 million. This is the kind of margin that Karl Rove can rig in a heartbeat.
Karl Rove first got the attention of George Bush (#41) when he went to a local homeless shelter in Texas and passed out notices of free food at an upcoming Democratic opponent's event. The resulting chaos made the nightly news, the Democrat lost, Bush hired Rove where he was soon elevated after taking a few lessons from Lee Atwater.
