Walker party cheers results

A large volley of cheers erupted at the Walker Party when projections showed Scott Walker will win the governorship.

And another as the race was called for Ron Johnson.

The already fired-up crowd just heard a victory speech from Jim Sensenbrenner, who cruised to re-election.

Sensenbrenner promised that “Republicans will not let you down” as they take control of the House, and, he anticipated, the state.

He said the last couple of years have been “pretty frustrating” but that he knew American would tire of the liberal agenda agenda, which he said was to tax, spend and control people's lives.

He said Wisconsin had a double-dose of the liberal agenda.

"We had Obama's tax and spend, we had Jim Doyle's tax and spend, and the boot has been applied to their rear ends," he quipped to applause.

Lt. guv candidate Rebecca Kleefisch, anticipating victory, thanked supporters and her family. She said Walker was ready to take his place in history.

"Under his leadership, we will restore Wisconsin to prosperity and tell the world that Wisconsin is open for business again," she said.

GOP Chair Reince Priebus also rallied the crowd, promising that Republicans would govern with the principles they campaigned on.

"Are you ready for the Scott Walker era in Wisconsin?" Priebus asked the charged crowd. "Are you ready for Scott Walker to take the conservative movement to Madison once and for all?"

While he remarked on the historic nature of the night for the GOP, he said it was not about Republicans and Democrats, but about "real and authentic people" going to Madison and Washington who will govern with "pure hearts."

Priebus also acknowledged the role of the Tea Party movement, saying it has helped hold Republicans to their principles, which he said the GOP won't turn from again.

"We're proud we won your support and we appreciate your support," he said.
