Kloppenburg Declares Victory In Wisconsin Supreme Court Race


Late Update: The state AFL-CIO has released this statement:

Wisconsin Working Families Congratulate JoAnne Kloppenburg

"This is an enormous victory for the hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites who have stood up to have their voices heard and take back their government since Scott Walker began his extreme power grab," said Phil Neuenfeldt, Wisconsin State of the AFL-CIO. "Working families have stood together in the streets for months. Yesterday they stood together at polling locations throughout the state to change the shape of Wisconsin's future. Our courts are ready for the independent judgment of Joanne Kloppenburg."

"Yesterday in unprecedented numbers the working people of Wisconsin took back their democracy," explained Stephanie Bloomingdale, Secretary-Treasurer of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO. "The results of this election send a clear message that the nationwide attack against workers' rights will not be tolerated by the people."
