Scott Walker dominates, Labor falters in Wisconsin recall primary. Gov. Scott Walker, running virtually unopposed, nearly got more votes than the four Democrats combined – 626,538 to 665,436. The Democrats managed to attract only two-thirds as many votes as the 900,000 who signed the recall petitions. Why did almost 300,000 people stay home? We surmise a lot of Mickey Mouses and Adolf Hitlers had better things to do on a Tuesday.
