“The only governor elected twice in one term,” said Scott Walker’s wife Tonette Tuesday night, as she introduced her husband at a victory rally in Waukesha, following his resounding victory over the union-backed Democrat.
Walker’s 7-point margin of victory (he took 53 percent of the vote to Democrat Tom Barrett’s 46 percent) was larger than Walker’s 5.8 percentage-point victory over Barrett in the 2010 gubernatorial race.
“Tonight we tell Wisconsin, we tell our country, and we tell people all across the globe that voters really do want leaders who stand up and make the tough decisions,” Gov. Walker told a cheering crowd. “But now, but now it is time to move on and more forward in Wisconsin.”
