Close race could determine passage of right-to-carry law in Wisconsin

There are only two states that still ban citizens carrying concealed handguns, Wisconisn and Illinois. Twice in the last few years Wisconsin came with in a vote or two of overriding Democratic Governor Jim Doyle's vetoes, and in both cases the veto was upheld because one or two assembly Democrats switched their votes during the override. If Green wins this extremely close race, right-to-carry will pass (depending on a couple of state assembly races it might pass anyway).

The Badger State’s gubernatorial race is almost even, according to the latest poll by Strategic Vision. 43 per cent of respondents would support incumbent Democrat Jim Doyle, while 42 per cent would vote for Republican challenger Mark Green.

A mid-July poll by Rasmussen Reports gave Doyle a six-point edge. . . .

If Wisconsin falls then maybe Illinois will be next.

Wisconsin has been within a whisker of passing right-to-carry law on a couple of occasions now...a gubernatorial defeat would clearly bring an end to Doyle's fascism.

Illinois has deeper, more corrupt, problems...don't hold your breath SNS ;-)
