OH SNAP!… It Looks Like Kloppenburg Lost Big, After All – Too Bad About That Victory Speech, Huh?
And just think…. It was only a few short hours ago that far left Wisconsin candidate JoAnne Kloppenburg declared victory in the state’s Supreme Court race.
Watch her victory speech from yesterday if you want a good laugh.
From the video:
Question: How do you feel comfortable declaring victory when the margin is so thin? Justice Prosser’s supporters seem to think that they may be able to pull out a victory in a recount process.
Kloppenburg: You know, we ran a campaign that was focused on being positive and respectful and winning and we did win and we’re confident that the margin will hold… Because we’ve enjoyed a broad and deep state-wide support and we’re gratified that the numbers showed that.
That’s not all.
Later in the day Kloppenburg released a victory statement to the media:
“We owe Justice Prosser our gratitude for his more than 30 years of public service. Wisconsin voters have spoken and I am grateful for, and humbled by, their confidence and trust. I will be independent and impartial and I will decide cases based on the facts and the law. As I have traveled the State, people tell me they believe partisan politics do not belong in our Courts. I look forward to bringing new blood to the Supreme Court and focusing my energy on the important work Wisconsin residents elect Supreme Court justices to do.”
It’s just too bad that less than 24 hours later her lead did not hold and she lost BIG.
Now will all the lefties out there please just admit that Prosser won and Get Over It!
