Nothing goes beyond the retention of Power. Who loses an election to an office, you must define the lost office, only new and its powers diminish, to spoil to the winner of the elections, the political Süpplein strong. From a Prime Minister, a mere figurehead, a President is a laughing stock.
On this crooked way, the Republicans in the state of Wisconsin are currently trying to, the loss of the Governor's post in the November elections as far as possible to cushion. The previous Governor Scott Walker, a Republican, lost his office to the Democrats, Tony Evers. In the state Parliament in the capital city of Madison, the Republicans will, however, continue in both chambers of the majority.

protests in Madison
What in 2011 was completely in order, threatens the state structure. "We may have made some mistakes, and Governor Walker is too much Power left," says Robin Vos, the Republican majority leader in the Wisconsin house of representatives. The new Governor wants to know about it, of course, nothing and accuses his opponents to accept the election result of November.
On Monday and Tuesday it came, therefore, to protests in front of the State legislature in Madison. "Respects our voices", demanded the protesters. So far, the Republican members of the house are not receded, however. The new Governor has already announced that he would, if necessary, before the courts in order to defend his Power.
