Will Wisconsin recall clip Gov. Scott Walker's power? Three scenarios.
Political eyes around the nation are on Wisconsin today, as voters in six districts cast ballots in the third – and most critical – of four recall votes. Six Republican state senators face possible defeat today. Next week, two Democratic state senators will be in the same position.
The vote is widely seen as a referendum on the anti-union strategies of Republican Gov. Scott Walker, and thus has drawn interest – and funding – from across the country.

- It's taking place during the dog days of summer.
- Extremely high turnout is expected.
- Candidates and interest groups have spent more than $30 million.
