Darling: 'We did what you wanted us to do'


"We did it!" Alberta Darling exclaimed at 12:21 a.m.

"Listen to this. The taxpayers, the voters, said 'Do something different' in November; they said in April, 'Come on, we're with you' and this election they said, 'We're with you,' so let's have an end to this division in Wisconsin. Let's grow jobs and this economy."

"It was about my leadership to work for the people of this state. I'm very proud to say we stood up against the special interest groups, we stood up against the unions and we said, the voters count."

"I'm so excited, because this is a microcosm of the whole nation," Darling continued. "We did what you wanted us to do. We got control of the spending and the debt and the deficit ... without raising taxes on you. We stood up for you! We're going to keep doing that. We're going to grow jobs. We're going to make this state vital. We're going to have prosperity and opportunity for all."

Darling called up John Yingling, her campaign strategist since 1990, for a thank-you hug at the podium.

Afterward, Yingling said Darling's victory was a referendum on Gov. Scott Walker's budget and showed that voters believe it's working.

He also said the events of the past week, during which the United States saw its credit rating downgraded and the stock market plunged 600 points in one day, might have swayed voters at the last minute. "It convinced people we've got to get spending under control," said Yingling.

"On, Wisconsin!" Darling exclaimed.
