Blowouts and barnburners -- Few examples of close recalls
As I've mentioned before, recalls tend to be blowouts, one way or another. No one was predicting a set of blowouts tonight, though three of the races are large victories (58% of the vote). A look at thistory won't help us too much. George Petak, the first Wisconsin Senator to be recalled, lost 51-47. But this year in Omaha, the Mayor survived 51-49. So, no real help there.
