Senate and presidential races top Wisconsin’s ballot
MADISON — Wisconsin Democrats are hoping to keep a presidential winning streak alive and avenge a loss that sent a former longtime senator packing six years ago.
Republicans hope to make Donald Trump the first GOP presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan to win in Wisconsin. They also are working to send Sen. Ron Johnson back to the Senate in his rematch against former Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold.
Those two statewide races topped Wisconsin’s ballot Tuesday.
In northeast Wisconsin, the open 8th Congressional District saw Republican newcomer Mike Gallagher running against Democratic Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson. The seat is open due to the retirement of Republican Rep. Reid Ribble.
Republicans were expected to maintain control of the state Legislature.
