The rise of President Donald Trump and the train wreck his presidency has proven to be thus far has actually been a blessing in disguise for Democrats who are now beating out Republicans in tough elections throughout the country.

Sen. Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) welcomed Schachtner to the State Senate, noting, "Patty's message of building up our communities and bridging our differences clearly had an impact as we saw some of the best numbers Democrats have seen in this district in decades". Walker's remarks about Schachtner's win and the fact that Republicans are passing up opportunities to run in political races.

Schachtner, who will be sworn in February 13 in Madison, also said her message calling for treatment for people suffering from addiction and more access to mental and physical health care resonated with 10th District voters.

"People don't like that any more", Hardin said. "The results from today show that Wisconsin is ready for a change in Madison". A conservative group sponsoring Jarchow - the Koch brothers'-backed Americans for Prosperity - said in the run-up that "the eyes of the nation will be on western Wisconsin as voters go to the polls in the first special election of 2018". Perez said Democrats have flipped 34 state legislative seats from red to blue since past year.

He called it a "wake up call for Republicans in Wisconsin". The governor, who is up for re-election to a third term this November, tweeted minutes after Schachtner's win.

The results won't affect control of the state Senate, where Republicans hold an 18-13 advantage.

"From collective bargaining reform and Right to Work to welfare reform, everything we have done is at risk if we don't win in November", Walker said Wednesday in a fundraising letter. According to data compiled by Daily Kos Elections, there have been 44 state house elections and 24 state Senate elections in which a Democrat and Republican nominee were pitted against each other since Trump won - in addition to the one US Senate and 5 US House elections of this nature that got much more national coverage. The party made many of its biggest improvements over the 2016 presidential in districts Trump won in the South and Midwest. Leah Vukmir, R-Brookfield, to campaign for Jarchow. Schachtner overwhelmingly won St. Croix, Pierce and Dunn counties, while Jarchow carried Polk and Burnett counties.
