Walker Posts High Vote Total in Uncompetitive Primary

May 8, 2012

Late on Tuesday, Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker had received more votes than the top two finshers in the Democratic primary combined. Walker's impressive total is a reflection of loyal support, considering he did not face any real primary competition.

With 87 percent of precincts reporting, Walker had received over 547,000 votes according to the Associated Press, about 38,000 more than the combined total of Democratic nominee Tom Barrett and runner-up Kathleen Falk. Arthur Kohl-Riggs, the liberal activist who said he ran against Walker in an attempt to prevent Republicans from voting in the Democratic primary, received abut 17,000 votes.

With over 315,000 votes according to the latest tally, Barrrett cruised to victory on the Democratic side. He will face Walker in a rematch of the 2010 election.
