For decades, Democrats enjoyed a rich political history in Wisconsin. Often called a progressive state, political strategists and pundits gave the automatic check-mark to the Democratic candidate. Judging from history, that is not exactly the case.Since the states inception in 1848, two-thirds of the Governors, 30 of 45, have been Republican. Since 1979, Democrats only held the Governorship 12 of the last 33 years. Over two-thirds, or 21 of 27 U.S. Senators in the seat currently held by Sen. Ron Johnson, have been Republicans, and exactly two-thirds, or 8 of 12 U.S. Senators in the seat currently held by Sen. Herb Kohl, have been Republican. 60% of our Congressmen have ben Republican. And in fact, many believe the birthplace of the Republican Party is ripon Wisconsin.Even recent history should suggest its time for the political strategists and pundits to shed the "blue" moniker for our state. Since the 2010 election, there has literally been a Red Tsunami in the Badger State. In 2010, the State Assembly gained seats, the State Senate majority was regained, and Scott Walker, the Republican Rockstar, became Governor. Ron Johnson upset the Liberal Maverick hero convincingly, and in the Congressional races, Republicans picked up one more seat to hold 5 of the 8 seats, with 3 of those candidates winning with 70% of the vote.In 2010, Walker won 58 of the 72 counties or 80.5%. In the recall election in June of this year, he won 60 of the 72 counties or over 83%. Even the Democratic stronghold of Racine County went to Walker both times. It is now time to finally put Wisconsin in the "Red" category. Wisconsin is at the forefront of the political arena today thanks to Republicans with courage and vision, like Governor Scott Walker and Congressman and Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan. Wisconsin is as "Red" as the cardinal red of the Wisconsin Badgers. Not just today, but from the beginning.
