In the original version of this story, FSRN incorrectly stated that Governor Scott Walker won every county he carried in 2010, except for Kenosha. In fact, Governor Walker lost two additional counties that he won in 2010: La Crosse and Columbia. FSRN regrets the error.


Results are in from primary and recall elections across the US. In New Jersey Democrat Bill Pascrell beat out Steve Rothman in a contest that pitted two former allies from the same party for the newly configured 9th Congressional District.

In a Northern California race to replace outgoing Congressmember and former Progressive Caucus chair Lynn Woolsey, Democratic Assemblymember Jared Huffman and Republican Dan Robert finished in the top two, according to unofficial results. Progressive candidate Norm Solomon came in third.

Also, Jill Stein appears to have secured the Green Party presidential nomination with a victory in California, beating out candidates Roseanne Barr and Kent Mesplay.

And in Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker has become the first Governor in US History to survive a recall election. Walker defeated challenger Tom Barrett 53 to 46 percent. FSRN’s Molly Stentz has more from Madison.
