This is a district Trump won in a 17 point blowout

We just turned it Blue

This is great news but we need to keep the pressure up. We need to keep the momentum going and get out the vote in November!



Democrats Flip Another Wisconsin Seat, Making 43 Since Trump Inauguration

The victory follows other surprise wins by the party in conservative districts in the state this year.

Wisconsin Democrats may have put fear into the heart of Republican Gov. Scott Walker again.

On Tuesday, they flipped another legislative seat in a traditionally conservative district, marking the 43rd seat to shift from Republican to Democratic control since President Trump’s inauguration.

In Wisconsin’s 1st Senate District, Democrat Caleb Frostman defeated GOP State Rep. Andre Jacque. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Frostman led 51-49, a total of almost 1,000 votes. Republican Frank Lasee previously held the seat but was appointed to Walker’s administration last December. This district, including Door and Calumet, voted for Trump by 17 points and for Mitt Romney in 2012 by almost 5 points.

4. So these "competitive" districts are running 15-20% bluer than 2016...

Not exact math, but thereabouts.
