Scott Walker finally calls special elections and drops plan to nullify court order to do so
By Stephen Wolf

"In a victory for democracy, Wisconsin’s Republican Gov. Scott Walker finally agreed to call special elections on Thursday for two state legislative seats that have been vacant since December. Walker had tried leaving these seats empty until the regular November elections solely because Republicans were worried Democrats could win them. This would have meant these voters would have gone without representation for nearly a year. However, a state judge recently ordered Walker to call the special elections by Thursday as required by state law."





====================================================

That was the right choice to have made. Wisconsin deserved better than to hold those two positions hostage until a later date simply on the premise that Democrats could take them over. It is good that Walker has followed the judge's order and dismissed his previous foolishness and partisanship.
