Walker was choice for Greenfield and West Allis

June 6, 2012

Gov. Scott Walker took both West Allis and Greenfield on the way to his statewide win over Democratic challenger Tom Barrett in Tuesday's recall election.

With a 75.4 percent turnout in West Allis, Walker polled 54 percent to Barrett's 45 percent. With the results still unofficial, the vote totals were 13,941 for Walker and 11,548 for Barrett. Those numbers do not include absentee or provisional ballots.

In Greenfield, where the turnout was 80 percent, Walker captured 57 percent to Barrett's 43 percent. The unofficial vote totals were 9,522 for Walker and 7,167 for Barrett.

All but three of Greenfield's 21 wards went for Walker. Barrett took Wards 3 and 4 in the northeast section of the city east of 43rd Street and Ward 17, an almost triangular-shaped ward south of Layton Avenue and between 60th Street and Loomis Road.
