Darling mingles as results continue to trickle in

At 10 p.m., the Darling party finally tuned in Channel 58 news on the projection screen, but the crowd was too noisy for anyone to hear. Meanwhile television news reporters readied their camera tripods and Darling chatted with some of them.

Andrew Fleckenstein, a recent UW-Milwaukee film major graduate, set up his camera, as a freelancer for Patch.com. He shook his head as he looked at the crowd of Darling supporters, saying it was just the opposite during the past semester at UWM.

"There was a lot of protests and anti-Walker, anti-Darling sentiment on campus," he said. "I'm Republican, but there is a very strong left there. Even the teachers were telling students back in February, March and April to leave class and 'go out and protest.' They weren't even taking attendance."

Fleckenstein said he heard a lot of students were going to vote for Pasch. "I think a lot of students are misguided," he said. "They think it's fun to join the protests but I wonder if they understand the issues."

By 10:17 p.m., Pasch's lead had narrowed to 51 percent to 49 percent, with 63 percent of the vote in. But Darling had wandered off to mingle with the crowd. Still too early to call.
