The thing of it we have a big expense to
pension etc for only a two-year elected official.

King surely will be totally ineffective this next two years, mostly because her ideology is spend and raise taxes.
She'll be voting "No" on any GOP bill....even if the GOP bill makes total sense for Wisconsin
moving forward or tries to increase jobs.

The senate district people will discover the hard way how awful and ineffective a negative, in-your-face, anti-anything-GOP official will be.
There won't be any bi-partisan on her part for the good of the people.
AND she ran on "communication!!!!" HA
So then, King will get ousted next election in favor of someone who will maintain fiscal conservatism, and then the district will just have to fork it over and over for the rest of our lives for this lousy two years!

Two thousand-some voters weren't thinking sensibly in this senate district, on August 9th.
They wasted today's money on King, and they're going to waste future money on King.

The only winner King, herself who was only out for herself to begin with.
She'll go back to her former work at helping people
get out of paying their bills.

So now when the governor gets recalled by the outside influence in this state, are the voters going to make that same mistake? Are they going to elect a democrat for a short term who will have a republican controlled legislature?

People....this state needs jobs. This state needs
fiscal sensibilities to withstand the flood coming
from the Obama mandates.....we don't need
grid-lock. We don't need outside interests causing us to waste money on short-term, ineffective elected officials!

PS did a great job! You took huge political risks for the good of Wisconsin as a whole, but it just didn't work out for you this time.
You weren't being selfish and this was what
I respect the most.
