Wisconsin Upset Raises Hopes for Democrats in 2018 Races

"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.
