In Wisconsin, Walker falls to lingering resentments and fresh impatience


November 8, 2018

HUDSON, WIS. – After two terms, one recall attempt and a failed presidential bid, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was rejected Tuesday by voters weary of his ties to President Donald Trump, cuts to education and antagonism toward unions.

Walker conceded Wednesday afternoon to Tony Evers, superintendent of the state’s Department of Public Instruction, after coming up 31,000 votes short among 2.6 million cast. Although Wisconsin is a wide swath of Republican red, he lost Milwaukee, Madison and the surrounding suburbs for reasons that were discussed and debated Wednesday around this western Wisconsin town.
