HUGE TURNOUT IN WISCONSIN: REPUBLICANS NEARLY DOUBLE TURNOUT FROM 2008 PRIMARY NIGHT IN WI, MD, DC

DEVELOPING: WISCONSIN PRIMARY TURNOUT BLOWOUT- 95% INCREASE (AND COUNTING) OVER 2008 TOTAL (THEN 402,699); 58% OVER 2000 TOTAL (THEN 495,769) CURRENT TOTAL: 785178 VOTES--ALSO BEATING PRIMARY TURNOUT FROM 2010 GOV RACE (WALKER V NEUMANN V PATERICK) BY 170K

WAUKESHA COUNTY FINALLY ROLLING IN, TOTAL 83K

Primary Results Links:
WISCONSIN (CALLED BY CAC @ 2104)
DC (CALLED BY FOXNEWS FOR ROMNEY @2000)
and MARYLAND (CALLED BY FOXNEWS FOR ROMNEY @2000)

Romney is now expected to sweep, the question now is the margin.
Polls close 8pm EST in Maryland and D.C., 9pm in Wisconsin.

Also of note is a ward election in Washington D.C., in which Marion Barry (who is now on twitter) is running for re-election. My twitter feed today has been about 30% Barry GOTV. If that guy can amp up his supporters for a damn ward, what the hell are we doing wrong?

CAC's Projections: Romney by >25 in Maryland, >10 in Wisconsin, irrelevantly high number in Washington D.C.

Sorry for re-bumping, but this is the highest surge in turnout over 2008 for any state this year, may bode well for Governor Walker in his fight for re-election.

From the Brookfield Patch, the scene at Waukesha County:

UPDATE 1046AM- WAUKESHA COUNTY RESULTS NOW UP ON WEBSITE: Romney 51k to Santorum's 24k in Waukesha-- Romney looks to finish statewide with 44% of the vote, Santorum with 37%

Waukesha's total R- 83k. Total votes for Prosser in April 2011 (race with twice the statewide turnout as now)- 92k.
