Now that the recall elections primary is over, Wisconsin voters have a clearer picture of who our future state leaders could be. However, a lot of questions are being raised; what do the results mean and where does the state go from here?

UWMC Political Science Professor Eric Giordano says he was able to predict the outcome of yesterday's elections for the most part. He says Falk and Barrett were leading in polls all along, plus with the amount of advertising they put into campaigning, it wasn't for him to gather.

Giordano also touched on campaign spending for this year as compared to previous elections. Walker alone has raised over $25 million so far, with democrats trailing far behind, something that could certainly affect voting results.

When it comes to the ballet in June, Wisconsin voters could put their checks anywhere as Giordano says there is no solid trend in regards to the state being right-winged or left. Not so surprisingly, he says he'll eagerly be keeping a tight watch on the election process up until the actual recall election June 5th.
