    Arizona still have over 300,000 votes yet to be counted. the day after the election it was over 500,000 with 174k provisional ballots. Most are in MAricopa county where Phoenix and its suburbs are located That along with a Spanish lanaguage flyer put out by the Maricopa County recorder telling saying election day was on the 8th. To her credit they spent $35K to get the word out about the mistake but Arizona is feeling more and more like a kookacracy.

    In Wisconsin....

    ...the 'R's retook the state senate and expanded their margin in the state assembly - 18R - 15D and 60R - 39D, respectively. Thus, the Republicans are more powerful in Wisconsin's state government now than they were on the day before that all of that recall silliness began nearly two years ago (the assembly was 59R - 40D then).

    Also, all of Wisconsin's USHouse incumbents won and the one open seat, covering the Madison area, was retained by the 'D's, for the delegation to remain 5R - 3D.

    To be fair, let's not forget that the districts for state and House offices were redrawn by a republican government to help assure republican majorities. Given that the state did provide majorities to Tammy Baldwin and Barack Obama, this makes the results a little hard to interpret. Is Wisconsin really all that republican? The anwer is probably that we are pretty evenly split.
