A Lawrence University political science professor says Democrats have been trying to get Governor Walker for a long time, and they finally pulled it off.
Walker lost his re-election bid to Democratic challenger Tony Evers.
Professor Arnold Shober says in late October, Walker had a 55 percent approval rating in the state. He thinks a number of things worked against the governor. He says Walker was running in a state where President Trump isn’t wildly popular right now.
And Schober says Walker would have been only the second third-term governor in state history. He says Walker apparently didn’t have enough popularity to reach that mark.
Shober says Evers had about 200,000 more votes than Democrat Mary Burke got, when she challenged Walker four years ago. He says Walker’s vote total stayed about the same.
