Dem Schachtner beats Jarchow to take Senate seat

Voters in Racine, Washington fill open legislative seats

The Associated Press reported that with almost all returns in, Schachtner, the the chief medical examiner for St. Croix County, was winning by more than 1,600 votes.

But Democrats banked that anti-Trump backlash could even the playing field. Republicans have flipped four seats from blue to red - two in the Republican-trending Deep South, one in New Jersey, and one in MA. In 2016, Harsdorf won reelection by 26 percentage points, and Trump beat Hillary Clinton by 17 points.

But previous year, after Harsdorf left for a job in Walker's administration, both parties saw the 10th district as potentially competitive. Republicans sensed it, too. The conservative Americans for Prosperity spent at least $50,000 on ads, and the Wisconsin Alliance for Reform and Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce threw in another $80,000. Republican state Sen. Leah Vukmir, a darling of the religious right who is running for the U.S. Senate, campaign for Jarchow in the district.

Schachtner said her win sends a message that voters are exhausted of negative politics.

All of Tuesday's results were encouraging for Democrats, though they only managed to flip Wisconsin's 10th Senate District.

Steve Bannon will tell all to Robert Mueller
The committee itself eventually subpoenaed Bannon for refusing to answer its questions, reports said. Conaway also stressed that Bannon is not in a position to invoke executive privilege himself.

If Walker's frantic calls for his followers to "help us share the good news" weren't enough to alarm some Republicans ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, the victory lap taken by some Democrats just might.

The result is a bad omen for Republicans, seeing as President Donald Trump carried the district easily in 2016 en route to a statewide victory, the first by a Republican presidential candidate in Wisconsin since 1984.

Her victory doesn't change the balance of power in the Senate, where Republicans maintain an 18-14 majority. She replaces Democrat Cory Mason, who is stepping away to serve as mayor of Racine. The seat opened up in October after incumbent Republican Bob Gannon died.

Republican Rick Gundrum of Slinger defeated Democrat Dennis Degenhardt for an open seat in eastern Wisconsin's solidly red 58th Assembly District.
