Update 11:04pm Eastern Sigh.

“Sen. Jim Holperin (D-Conover) held onto his seat in Tuesday’s recall vote in the 12th Senate District in northern Wisconsin.”

And fleebagger survival makes two:

“The MacIver News Service is projecting that Sen. Robert Wirch (D) has survived his #wirecall. GOP to have 17-16 Wisc Sen majority.”
