Dow Jones up more than 200 points: Walker surge?!/JimPethokoukis/status/210441139617140737

Coincidence or Walker surge? His win last night was a huge loss for Big Labor and a huge win for fiscal responsibility.


Hey, Mitt Romney did predict the results echoing beyond the borders of Wisconsin!

“I congratulate Scott Walker on his victory in Wisconsin. Governor Walker has demonstrated over the past year what sound fiscal policies can do to turn an economy around, and I believe that in November voters across the country will demonstrate that they want the same in Washington, D.C. Tonight’s results will echo beyond the borders of Wisconsin.”

Twitter users weigh in on and have some much-need fun with the news.
