The View After Election Day…

The View After Election Day…

On the other side of Election Day we have some answers, but not all of them.

Wisconsin is one of a half-dozen states that went to bed too close to call.

Election managers last night said no one will know if President Trump or Joe Biden won the state until the votes in Milwaukee are counted. That should happen early this morning.

Republicans last night held on to their majorities in both the State Assembly and the State Senate. Democrats managed to deny Republicans a veto-proof majority in the State Senate with Brad Pfaff’s victory in the La Crosse and Crawford counties area. Republicans picked-up a seat in northwestern Wisconsin and had a lead in a third senate seat in the Green Bay area. Vote totals in that race came-in well past 3 a.m.

It looks like western Wisconsin’s Democratic congressman is heading back to Washington D.C..

KIND

Ron Kind ended the night with an 11-thousand vote lead over his Republican challenger Derrick Van Orden. But, as of 2:30 a.m. there was still one percent of the vote that had not been reported. Kind has been in Congress in western Wisconsin since 1997, he is a Democrat in what is moving to be a very Republican part of Wisconsin.

EMERSON

In other races, Jodi Emerson wins her bid for re-election in the 91st Assembly District. 

TIFFANY

Tom Tiffany wins the 7th U.S. Congressional seat in Wisconsin.

The 7th congressional district was a rematch from earlier this year. Former state senator Tom Tiffany won a special election in May for the seat previously held by Republican Sean Duffy.
