Mid-Term Elections 2014

Written by

(AP) Wisconsin's Republican Gov. Scott Walker has defeated Democratic challenger Mary Burke, winning re-election to a second term. Walker's win Tuesday marks his third victory in four years. He won a first term in 2010 and a recall election in 2012 prompted by anger over a law that effectively ended collective bargaining for most public workers. The win also keeps Walker in the mix for a potential 2016 GOP presidential bid, although he downplayed such talk during the tough re-election campaign against Burke. She is a former Trek Bicycles executive and state Commerce Department secretary who argued that Walker failed the state and was too divisive.  But Walker prevailed by arguing that he turned around the state's economy while cutting taxes and wiping out a budget shortfall.
