Democrat Patty Schachtner won the special election for Wisconsin's 10th Senate District, the same district President Donald Trump won by 17 points.

Patty Schachtner won the special election for Wisconsin's 10th Senate District. Republican Sheila Harsdorf had held that seat since 2001 but stepped down last year.
In 2016, President Donald Trump won that same district by 17 points.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, called Schachtner's win a "wake up call." And he's not the only one who feels that way.

That said, Republicans will still hold a 18-14 majority in Wisconsin.
