  • Democrats Pick Up Wisconsin State Senate Seat in District Trump Won by 17 Points

It's a wake up call, that's what Governor Scott Walker calls a democratic win in the state's 10th senate district.

The result in the 10th, which Harsdorf won in 2000 and held easily for years, gave Wisconsin Democrats their first pickup on Republican turf since 2011.

On election night, Schachtner said her win sends a message that voters are exhausted of negative politics. A conservative group sponsoring Jarchow - the Koch brothers'-backed Americans for Prosperity - said in the run-up that "the eyes of the nation will be on western Wisconsin as voters go to the polls in the first special election of 2018". "People came out and voted for change and I think that's really important".

"KD, thank you so much, brother, for continuing to uplift and empower our communities", Kaepernick said to Durant in a video announcing the donation. Moreover, Wisconsin Republicans may have believed that they could hold this seat despite a strong Democratic performance.

A month after deep-red Alabama voted for a Democratic senator, a deep-red Wisconsin district rejected a Republican candidate for a state Senate seat.

But part of the problem, too - a big part - is the Some large percentage of the special election results since the presidential election can be attributed to Trump's unpopularity and the desire of Democrats to express opposition to him.

Schachtner is just the latest Democrat to win a seat that had once been considered virtually unwinnable for the party.

"The victory by Schachtner in a Republican-leaning state Senate district could prove another warning sign for the GOP of a potential Democratic wave, sparked by animosity toward President Donald Trump, that many have predicted in this year's 2018 midterm elections", writes Louis Nelson.

Here's what they don't say: She is a former member of the Wisconsin Bear Hunters' Association, a gun-safety advocate, and a member of the Board of Education in the School District of Somerset who talked about public education while she was campaigning. Now, she's ready to do that for the entire state of Wisconsin.

Schachtner attributed her victory to the positive tone of her campaign amid negative mailers from outside the state.

"Democrats from rural areas face an existential crisis", says the report. "That happens to people all the time", Schachtner says.

"From collective bargaining reform and Right to Work to welfare reform, everything we have done is at risk if we don't win in November", Walker said Wednesday in a fundraising letter.
