Wisconsin Making History in their recall election 2011

Six Republican senators were targeted for recall after backing Walker's union-busting bill this spring. Only two of the six republicans lost their seat. Randy Hopper lost and will be replaced by Jessica King and Dan Kapanke lost his seat to Jennifer Shilling.
The results mean Republicans will hold the State Senate majority by a slim margin of 17 to 16.
In Wisconsin history, only two lawmakers have ever been recalled.
