Illinois Republicans are chiming in on Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's victory last night.  GOP Party Chairman Pat Brady says Walker's ability to withstand the recall shows that "voters are fed up with big spending Democrats running their state governments."  Brady says Walker's reforms are exactly what Illinois needs right now.  Plus, he says the state could use more fiscally courageous leaders like Scott Walker and less like Pat Quinn, Mike Madigan and John Cullerton, who think the solution to every problem is a tax increase.  Walker defeated Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in a recall election yesterday.  He won by five percentage points.
