Next up for the team is working out a land sale with Milwaukee County and getting approval for the arena from the Milwaukee Common Council.

….9. To my fellow conservatives, it was a great week to be us. But there are no permanent victories in politics and winning is only worthwhile if we make something of it. Expanded school and parental choice. Regulatory reform. An end to crony capitalism. A fresh approach to strengthening our urban areas. More economic freedom.…

Of course, that didn’t happen. Wisconsin’s turnout increased by somewhere in the neighborhood of 300,000 voters– with Walker taking the majority of these additional voters. Via WI One of Few States to See Increase in Midterm Turnout: Burke’s #s Were Good Enough to Win in 2010 @ Uppity Wisconsin

Only a wave election with a huge turnout of Democrats can defeat Walker. Via Who Will Win For Governor? – Urban Milwaukee @ Murphy’s Law.

But Milwaukee in particular has generated smaller turnouts and smaller Democratic margins in mid-term elections. The city of Milwaukee had a turnout of 47% of voting-age citizens in 2010 and 72% in November 2012. Democrats need a…
