Dem Schachtner beats GOP's Jarchow for 10th Senate District seat

The next White House battle will likely to pit Trump against both Democrats and rogue Republican challengers

"Senate District 10 special election win by a Democrat is a wakeup call for Republicans in Wisconsin", Republican Gov. Scott Walker shared in a tweet after the win.

While the special election was held to fill an empty seat in Wisconsin's state legislature, Ms Schachtner's triumph could prove to be another warning sign for Republicans to not take the challenge from Democrats lightly during the midterm elections in November.

Schachtner said Tuesday night that in spite of high expectations, even she was surprised by the 9 percentage point win. Conservative groups Americans for Prosperity and the Republican State Leadership Committee both ran ads supporting Jarchow and Republican state Sen.

"KD, thank you so much, brother, for continuing to uplift and empower our communities", Kaepernick said to Durant in a video announcing the donation. Janet Bewley, a Democratic state senator from Wisconsin, says in the report that the working class "just wants a vehicle that runs, a vacation, and to be able to buy their kids the shoes they want rather than the shoes they need".

Walker, who is seeking re-election next year, tweeted that the GOP setback was "a wake-up call for Republicans in Wisconsin". In November, Democrats in Virginia triumphed in gubernatorial and legislative elections that many pundits viewed as a swing-state referendum on the Trump presidency.

Patty Schachtner beat GOP state Rep. Adam Jarchow to become the first Democrat to represent the 10th Senate District in at least 16 years.

OR boaters caught on camera jumping into water seconds before terrifying crash
Maess, an off-duty policeman and owner of the wrecked fishing boat, was left in a knee brace and suffered vision problems. Investigators also said that Maess and the other passengers escaped serious injuries or death by jumping into the water.

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

She has been the St. Croix County medical examiner since 2011 and has served as a leader on local mental health- and addiction-related initiatives.

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

State Democratic Party Chairwoman Martha Laning predicted more success for Democrats, saying in a statement, "The results from (Tuesday) prove that the blue wave we're seeing across the nation is gaining momentum in Wisconsin". "We're not in touch with people", says Mr Kinney.

He did not blame Trump by name, but said there is "frustration overall" with Washington.

Governor Walker says the republican party can't assume voters know about the good things happening right now in the state. A state senator from Iowa, Kevin Kinney, says Democrats are perceived as arrogant and as talking down to rural folks in the Midwest.
