Walker says the results show "we are at risk of a #BlueWave in WI".

"Big government special interests flooded Wisconsin with distorted facts & misinformation", Walker tweeted, saying he would be targeted next. "Next, they'll target me and work to undo our bold reforms". The Supreme Court race that year came in the middle of massive protests against Gov. Scott Walker's collective bargaining restrictions.

Dallet's first TV ad featured grainy black and white footage of President Donald Trump, warning voters that their values were under attack.

Walker warned that wins by Democrats could jeopardize the state's low unemployment rate, balanced budgets and $8 billion in tax cuts. Randy Bryce called the victory 'a rallying cry for working folks.' Walker also used the results to raise money.

But Democrats are eager to see momentum, especially after they won a special Senate election in January for a reliably conservative seat in the western part of the state.

Kim Jong Un 'deeply moved' at South Korea's K-Pop diplomacy
The Authoritative Dictator of the Communist State was ready to meet the President of the United States, Donald Trump. In previous years K-pop, which has a global following, has been used by Seoul in a very different capacity.

It's the latest in a series of major election victories for Democrats.

Walker and his team campaigned heavily for Screnock, while the National Rifle Association backed him as a "committed judge who will interpret the Constitution the way our Founding Fathers intended".

Screnock, meanwhile, argued Dallet's overtures to Democrats showed she would be an "activist" on the court, but Screnock himself received $300,000 from the Republican Party of Wisconsin, the most a political party has ever spent on a Supreme Court candidate in the state's history.

"The candidate with the most experience in our courts and standing up for the fairness of our courts won", Dallet said. "I think people are exhausted of what's been going on in our state in terms of the money coming in to buy these elections and people spoke out tonight".

Dallet's victory narrows conservative control of the court from 5-2 to 4-3. With Dallet's win, six of the seven members of the court are now women. It was the first time a non-incumbent liberal candidate won a seat in over 20 years.

Scholz said Dallet was able to reach voters in areas of the state former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost in 2016.
