    Wisconsin goes red

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     In regards to the moving of the polling place, WausauFamily told me, 'No matter what party did it it just didn't seem right.' CNN affiliate WSAW covered the story.
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Interesting races are taking place in Wisconsin. Democratic Tom Barrett is running against Republican Scott Walker for governor. Democratic Julie Lassa is running against Republican Sean Duffy for the seat left open by Rep. Dave Obey, who announced his retirement earlier this year. Democratic incumbent Russ Feingold is running against Republican Ron Johnson for U.S. Senate. The voting process went smooth, quick, and everyone was friendly.

     

    UPDATE 10/03/10

     

    Sean Duffy, GOP, Elected U.S. House, District 7. He ran against Julie Lassa.

    Republican Scott Walker wins Governor’s race against Tom Barrett.

    Ron Johnson wins U.S. Senate race against incumbent Russ Feingold.

     

    America voters sent a strong message to Washington Monday night. Neither side should rest comfortably. Exiting polls continued to show anger with each party and jobs seemed to be on the mind of most. Little trust for any of them.

     

    Personally, the nasty tone of this election was disgusting. Now it's time to see which promises are kept and which are swept under the carpet. Good luck to all, your going to need it. Billions spent on this election. Fire on the tail-end is the best motivator so lets see this economy put back to work.
