Republicans In Control of Wisconsin State Government

by

UNDATED (WHBL) - Republicans have regained full control of state government, after re-capturing the Senate yesterday – but the extent of their power is still up in the air. The G-O-P will have at least a 17-to-16 majority, after Assembly Republican Tom Tiffany of Hazelhurst easily won an open Senate seat given up by Democrat Jim Holperin. And they would have a three-vote majority if Fond du Lac Republican Rick Gudex can preserve a close victory over Oshkosh Democrat Jessica King – who won a recall election last year. Final totals showed Gudex winning by just 590 votes out of 85-thousand cast – and a recount can certainly be expected.  Meanwhile, the G-O-P came into yesterday’s elections with a 20-vote majority in the other house – and their control of the Assembly was never threatened. Democratic incumbent John Steinbrink of Kenosha County lost to G-O-P Representative Samantha Kerkman, after re-apportionment moved both into the same district.
