Democrat wins western Wisconsin senate seat, flipping traditionally conservative district

MADISON, Wis. — A Democrat has been elected to represent a traditionally conservative Wisconsin Senate district where voters overwhelmingly supported President Donald Trump in 2016, in an upset that Democrats suggest could lead to more Republican losses in the state.

Patty Schachtner’s victory late Tuesday in the 10th Senate District — which includes Hudson and River Falls — could be a sign of hope for Democrats, who have been pushed to the brink of irrelevancy after seven years of Republican control of both legislative houses and the governor’s office.
