Democrats win traditionally conservative Wisconsin district

Democrats flip Wisconsin Senate seat in upset that could spell trouble for GOP Democrats Flip State Senate Seat in Wisconsin

A Democrat has been elected to represent a traditionally conservative Wisconsin Senate district where voters overwhelmingly supported President Donald Trump in 2016, in an upset that Democrats suggest could lead to more Republican losses in the state.

Jarchow, of Balsam Lake, tweeted that he had called Schachtner to congratulate her on the win, in a race that received statewide and even national attention. Mitt Romney won it in 2012 and Trump won it in 2016. In other Tuesday elections, Democrat Dennis Degenhardt won 43 percent of the vote in Wisconsin's 58th Assembly District; in 2016, Hillary Clinton won just 28 percent of the vote there, and no Democrat contested the seat.

Unofficial results show Parry Schachtner defeated state Representative Adam Jarchow in the 10 Senate District, with 54.6 percent of the vote to Jarchow's 44.2 percent.

Democrats have already made big gains elsewhere, including picking up 15 seats in the Virginia state House in November, and in Alabama, where Doug Jones captured a U.S. Senate seat last month.

This is of course just one race in one state. Democrat Greta Neubauer ran unopposed to replace retiring Democrat Cory Mason in the 66th Assembly District.

Schachtner, of Somerset, serves as medical examiner in St. Croix County.

President Trump Declares 'I Am Not A Racist'
As a result, the Mission said, "there is a serious need for dialogue" between the Trump administration and African countries. However, one of the Republican Senators who attended the meeting today claimed that Trump never used that word.

"People sent a message tonight we don't want to be negative any more", she said.

Schachtner said her win sends a message that voters are exhausted of negative politics. "Change it up. My message has always been be kind, be considerate and we need to help people when they're down".

Seventeen of Wisconsin's 33 senate districts are up for grabs in November, and Walker will be running for a third term.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says control of the Wisconsin Senate is now in play, which has significant implications for 2020 redistricting: "Once she is seated, Republicans will hold an 18-14 advantage, with one district vacant".

In fact, Mark Kleine, a top GOP House recruit in Illinois, withdrew his candidacy, the Illinois State Board of Elections revealed on Tuesday.
