The Walker vs. Burke race in Wisconsin—most important in nation

I hope he wins. If he can turn Wisconsin from the steep left going over a cliff, any governor should be able to learn from him. It may be the most important election in the nation on Tuesday. Unions are going all out to defeat him. And that's BIG money. The academics are going crazy with fear that their reign of terror over students could be challenged. Walker has something very few Republicans have--a backbone (you thought I would use a different word, admit it).

The reality is that Wisconsin has made a remarkable comeback in four years. The $3.6 billion budget deficit Walker inherited is now a surplus. Property and income taxes have been cut by $2 billion — for everyone. Jobs have come back, and the unemployment rate is down to 5.6% from 7.7% when he entered office.
