In an upset victory, Democrats flipped a reliably Republican state senate seat in Wisconsin tonight. Barack Obama lost Wisconsin’s 10th senate district by 6 points in 2012 and Hillary Clinton lost it by 17 in 2016. But Democrat Patty Schachtner defeated Republican state Rep. Adam Jarchow. Late returns showed Schachtner ahead by roughly 1600 votes out of more than 20,000 cast.
This is of course just one race in one state. But we have a growing list of just one race, just one state type situations around the country.
Senate District 10 special election win by a Democrat is a wake up call for Republicans in Wisconsin.
