  • Wisconsin Upset Raises Hopes for Democrats in 2018 Races

Schachtner's 9-point win is all the more worrisome to the GOP because she won the state's 10th Senate District against a well-known Republican, state Rep. Adam Jarchow, for a seat held since 2001 by Republican Sheila Harsdorf, who left to become the state's Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection secretary. "He has referenced the 2002 midterms, when George W. Bush and Republicans fared better after the September 11 terrorist attacks, these people said".

Schachtner is the first Democrat to hold the 10th Senate seat since 2000.

Schachtner, who will be sworn in February 13 in Madison, also said her message calling for treatment for people suffering from addiction and more access to mental and physical health care resonated with 10th District voters.

The HK-G, an acronym for Hong Kong-Guam, is another consortium cable interconnecting major subsea communication hubs in Asia. The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) region, which is now live in the country, will encourage more local firms to adopt Cloud.

Don't take it from Wisconsin Democrats when they say that a surprise win Tuesday night in a special election for the state Senate signals that right-wing Republican Governor Scott Walker is in political trouble.

Even Trump recognizes his party is on a downward spiral as his approval ratings have plummeted to rock bottom. 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.

A turning point in politics is happening right before our eyes and it may just result in the change we've been hoping for. "Wisconsin is going to elect Democrats up and down the ticket in 2018", Wachs said in a statement. But now the district's voters have rejected a well-financed Walker ally (state Representative Adam Jarchow) in favor of Schachtner, a Democrat who won nearly 55 percent of the vote.

She said that "negative mailings" against her from third-party groups likely influenced voters to rally around her.

Postlewaite said Schachtner's election is a good sign for Democrats but cautioned anyone drawing conclusions that "a lot can happen between now and November". Whereas Jarchow was strong in other rural areas of the district, he was less dominant in St. Croix, capturing just 11 of the county's 20 townships.

Schachtner, of Somerset, serves as medical examiner in St. Croix County.

Airbus posts record deliveries in 2017
The A380 drew worldwide attention when launched a decade ago but has always struggled to win enough customers. The company said it had a backlog of orders worth US$1.1 billion.

If Walker's frantic calls for his followers to "help us share the good news" weren't enough to alarm some Republicans ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, the victory lap taken by some Democrats just might.
