READ: Governor Scott Walker Warns of a ‘#BlueWave in WI’ After Rebecca Dallet Wins Supreme Court Seat

Sounds about right.

On Tuesday, Rebecca Dallet won a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Dallet, characterized as a liberal Democrat, gave her party hope for things to come.

President Donald Trump won the state in 2016 by less than 1 percent, but Dallet won her race against conservative judge Michael Screnock by double digits. Democrats in Wisconsin hope that momentum continues through November.

Governor Scott Walker, who endorsed Screnock and is up for reelection in November, Tweeted:

Tonight’s results show we are at risk of a #BlueWave in (Wisconsin). Big government special interests flooded Wisconsin with distorted facts & misinformation. Next, they’ll target me and work to undo our bold reforms.”

Walker concluded his Twitter thread with a call for volunteers and money for his own campaign.

Dallet won her seat by nearly 12 points, however past Supreme Court elections in the state did not always translate into victories in the regular elections. But Martha Laning, Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairwoman,  said Governor Walker should be concerned, calling it a “huge loss” for him because his “endorsement, philosophy and politics were on the ballot.”
