It was a split decision Tuesday night in two special Legislative elections being closely watched for signs of which party is building momentum heading into the fall midterms.
Republican Jon Plumer declared victory over Democrat Ann Groves Lloyd in the 42nd Assembly District, which includes part of northern Dane County, while Democrat Caleb Frostman, a former banker, defeated Rep. Andre Jacque, R-De Pere, in the 1st Senate District, which covers the Door County peninsula.
All four candidates have filed to run for the seats again in November.
Frostman’s roughly three-point victory came in a Senate district held by Republicans for more than 40 years and that Republican President Donald Trump won by 18 points in 2016 and Gov. Scott Walker won by 23 points in 2014.
