Republicans in Wisconsin won the war for the governor’s race, but it appears they have lost the battle in the Senate. According to The Associated Press’ informal count, former Sen. John Lehman defeated GOP Sen. Van Wanggaard of Racine by 770 votes - just over 1 percent. This narrow victory would result in a 17-16 democratic majority in the Senate.
However, with November elections fast-approaching, will Democrats be able to maintain this new majority power? JSonline explains why Wisconsin Democrats’ consolation prize could be short-lived.
