Dems hit Dane, Milwaukee targets, but still fall short

Dem hit their marks in Dane and Milwaukee counties yesterday. But they appeared to miss badly in the other key areas of the state.

A check of county results in the guv’s race shows the Fox Valley came home for Republicans yesterday, the Milwaukee suburban counties went hard for the GOP, and Scott Walker won counties like La Crosse, Marathon and Kenosha that went for Jim Doyle in 2006.

Walker did not appear to cut into the Dem advantage in Milwaukee County as some had believed he would. But his margins elsewhere more than made up for that as he won with 52 percent of the vote, according to unofficial returns.

And places like Racine County seem to underscore the wave that snapped back against Dems after they won control of the Assembly in 2008 to give them full control of the Legislature and guv’s office for the first time in more than 20 years.

In 2006, 71,327 voters turned out for the guv’s race as Republican Mark Green eked out a 300-vote win in the county.

Yesterday, almost 13,000 fewer voters cast ballots in the guv’s race, and Walker carried a 9,483-vote advantage over Dem Tom Barrett.

Here’s a rundown of some key counties with their 2006 results for the guv’s race compared to the unofficial returns from yesterday.
