State Supreme Court Justice-elect Rebecca Dallet made deep inroads in Trump territory as she swept to victory Tuesday against Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock, who was crushed even in his own county.

In far western Wisconsin, Dallet won in Chippewa, Dunn, St. Croix, Pierce, and Pepin counties, all of which voted for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

Dallet also swept through the southwestern part of the state, picking up Vernon, Crawford, Grant, Richland, Sauk, Iowa, Columbia, and Lafayette counties, flipping them from Trump.

Key: Green - voted for Trump in 2016, Dallet in 2018. Red - voted for Trump in 2016, Screnock in 2018. Blue - voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016; Dallet in 2018.

She took Screnock’s Sauk County, 56% to 44%.

In southeastern Wisconsin, only Kenosha County switched from Trump to Dallet. Milwaukee remained solidly blue.

In the east-central part of the state, Winnebago, Outagamie, Brown, Manitowoc, and Door counties went for Dallet after supporting Trump.

She also picked up Trempealeau, Jackson, Wood, Marathon, Lincoln, and Oneida counties in west- and north-central Wisconsin, all of which went for Trump  in 2016.

    SHE did it!! WE did it! DALLET WINS AND MAKES HISTORY!! First republicans got Schachtnered, then Career Politician and professional moocher Scott Walker got his little bad boy butt spanked by Eric Holder and three Wisconsin judges for trying to not let Wisconsinites vote, now we just whooped the Big Corporate republican special interest groups who spent more money to try and get their hand picked republican puppet on the Supreme Court than has ever been spent on any other Supreme Court campaign in Wisconsin history and yet, Dallet still won! Great job everybody! Now let’s enjoy our victory today but remember we have much much more work to do. We still have the special elections coming up in June, you know the ones that should’ve been held simultaneously with yesterday’s election but were held up because Career Politician Scott Walker was trying to deny people their constitututionally protected right to vote? Yeah, three Wisconsin judges smacked that down thankfully. And then, come November we must take our state back from these far right-wing Trump enabling republicans, and that starts with…


    All aboard the Freedom Train!

    The BIG BLUE WAVE is building!

    Restoring common sense, decency and justice to all.

    From a lifelong Republican that can no longer abide by the embarrassing GOP.

  3. Terry says:

    Just like I said would happen when Dallet won, WashCoRepug, WCD, NaziTroll and all the republican chickenhawks commenting on here would be nowhere to be found! Scared, obviously! Humiliated, of course they are! Sore LOSERS!!

    Dump Walker

    Yeah where are all the republicans normally commenting on UM? I wonder why they all decided to take the day off? Lol! Let’s keep it up until November. It’s nice not having the republican toads around!

  5. Troll says:

    I am curious about the comment A Prire. It is rare to see a life long Republican like a leopard, change its spots. In almost every dynamic time changes your political viewpoint to the right. Most of theses boomers that tip Conservative once voted Democrat. A Prire, your either full of sh!t or I am left with why a Conervative would vote for Dallet.

    P.S Terry for the third time since last night congrats.

    Troll ever stop and think that you are narrow-minded and well not very bright, and that’s why you can’t imagine someone older leacimg the GOP and voting Dallet?

  7. Terry says:

    Hi Troll, You haven’t been around since after the election. I was concerned. Glad to see you are doing ok. It’s tough, I know brother. It’s tough.

    Dump Walker

  8. Troll says:

    Terry, its not really tough. Walker has no “boogie man to confront” that is his problem. Democrats will again find themselves in power. The question is what will turn suburban women’s stomachs. Wisconsin Democrats helping a child rapist and domestic partner abusers to stay in this country with out papers as ICE agents attempt to clean up human trash. Will it be Democrats raising tax payers taxes again. Will it be having all state buildings becoming gender neutral. Waves come and go.

  9. Jacob Pickard says:

    Democrats are there to clean up Republicans and conservatives mess.

    And yes, they will raise taxes. It’s called reality.
    Only leech and ticks, known as rightwingers, want everything for nothing. But will take the red meat of hating minorities to give their tax dollars to the wealthy and corporations.

    As far as rapists, just look at your President Troll. You have no argument.

    Go make a pee pee tape.

  10. Terry says:

    Well said Jacob! Thank you!

    Dump Walker

    Congratulations to Judge Dallet. The scope of her victory, the margin, the breadth of support for her across the State is revealing. It’s a victory of a person who personifies decency, common sense, and the rule of law, over mean spirited thugs, making up rules as they go along to protect themselves, using the State treasury to benefit themselves and pals, and appealing to hate and outright lies. It’s a victory of our better angels and optimism over the Governor’s favorite tactic, divide and conquer with a heavy dose of appealing to fear, and his constant over inflating his highly questionable record, his constant doing and saying anything to please big out of state donors.
