Interestingly, running up the score in the two biggest counties in Wisconsin was the one thing the Barrett campaign did well in 2012- Dane and Milwaukee Counties had turnout at or near presidential levels. But losing all those red and orange counties was what did him in, and allowed Walker to keep his job. It seems pretty evident that Mary Burke and whoever wins the Attorney General race needs to perform well in NE and western Wisconsin tomorrow, and the results on Tuesday night could give an indication how much work they have to do.
