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

"President Donald Trump-along with Speaker Paul Ryan and Gov. Scott Walker who support and prop him up-are toxically unpopular and divisive", the state Democratic Party declared Tuesday night.

A Democrat resoundingly defeated her Republican rival to win the Wisconsin state Senate election Tuesday night, flipping a seat that had been red for almost two decades-a possible harbinger of doom for the GOP in the coming midterm elections.

"He urged people on Twitter to "help us share the good news".

The news is setting off alarm bells for Republicans, who are increasingly anxious about a Democratic wave in the 2018 midterms.

Steven Mnuchin Unsure if Bill Needed to Shore Up Tax Law
Treasury also said that employers should withhold 22 percent for taxes on bonuses - lower than the current rate of 25 percent. For example, there is a new $10,000 limit on the amount of state and local taxes a household can deduct from federal income.

Even Trump recognizes his party is on a downward spiral as his approval ratings have plummeted to rock bottom. "He has referenced the 2002 midterms, when George W. Bush and Republicans fared better after the September 11 terrorist attacks, these people said".

Likewise, Democratic gubernatorial candidate and state Rep. Dana Wachs of Eau Claire said the results show that voters are ready for a change. "Right now, in western Wisconsin, Wisconsin values is what keeps us going".

Schachtner said the victory "certainly could be" a bad sign for Republicans elsewhere in the state this year, but for now she's just focused on serving her new constituents. Perez said Democrats have flipped 34 state legislative seats from red to blue since previous year. Take it from Walker, the hyper-ambitious careerist who crashed and burned as a 2016 presidential contender and is now bidding for a third gubernatorial term. "The stakes are too high to sit on the sidelines, and Wisconsin Republicans will be redoubling our efforts to engage supporters and take our message of results directly to voters across the state". Walker worked with Trump past year on a much-criticized scheme to lure a manufacturing facility being developed by the Taiwanese-based Foxconn corporation to House Speaker Paul Ryan's congressional district in southeast Wisconsin-with $3 billion in tax incentives and promises to ease off on regulations. Schachtner won larger communities like Amery, St. Croix Falls and Osceola that all went Jarchow's way in the primary. 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.
