This Tuesday six state Senate recalls will be held in Wisconsin against Republican incumbents, launched in a backlash against Gov. Scott Walker’s policies against public employee unions, with the potential for control of the chamber to flip to the Democrats. And for his part, WisPolitics reports, Walker now says that result is “out of our hands” and with the voters.
“I believe if given the facts they’re going to make good decisions,” Walker told reporters, after a ceremony opening the State Fair in Milwaukee. “Sometimes they’re going to be decisions that side with me, sometimes they’re going to be with others, but I’m going to respect their decision.”
However, Walker stood by his predictions that voters would realize the benefits of his legislation: “I think slowly they will see, and overall the school programs have gotten better.”
