Read: Critical Election Results

I wanted to make sure you heard the great news from Tuesday's elections! Conservatives are energized and it is clear the momentum is in our favor heading into November! 

This massive success for conservatives couldn't have been done without the tireless efforts from our grassroots, and most importantly, from those brave individuals who put their name on the ballot and ran for office. 

Conservatives Dominate in Local Elections

While Democrats try to hang their hats on winning a mayoral race in a city where their party has routinely carried 80 percent of the vote, the enthusiasm for conservatives was clear in last night’s Spring Election. Across the state, conservatives were successful in roughly two-thirds of the races in which we were active, including swing and Democrat leaning areas.

This success was a testament to the strength of the grassroots Republican operation, including the infrastructure provided by our county parties, and Wisconsinites’ frustration with harmful and divisive curriculum in our schools, attacks on election integrity, and far-left overreach from liberal local elected officials.

Some highlights from Tuesday's election include:

  • Maria Lazar’s victory marked the second time an Evers appointee was defeated in the Second District Appellate Court.
  • Samantha Kerkman became the first woman, and reportedly the first Republican, elected as Kenosha County Executive in a historically Democrat county. 
  • A conservative was elected County Executive in Portage County, the heavily Democrat area once known as Dane County North. 
  • After Democrats spent about $100,000 on digital advertising on three Green Bay City Council seats, conservatives won two of those three seats and a majority on the council.
  • Adams, Calumet, Door, Kenosha, Marathon, Rock, and St. Croix counties all flipped their County Boards. An additional 9 County Boards are now within 3 seats of a Conservative majority.
  • Conservatives nearly doubled their seats on the 30-person La Crosse County Board, going from seven seats to 13 and nearly flipping control.
  • Every targeted Conservative candidate won their School Board elections in Cedarburg, Elmbrook, Manitowoc, Menomonee Falls, Germantown, Wausau, Oconomowoc, Whitnall, Waukesha, Altoona, Amery, New London, Neenah, West Bend.... and many others!
    • All 3 Conservative candidates in the Wausau School Board were victorious, leading to an 8-1 majority on the board, a board that in 2020 Democrats had control of 7-2.
  • 3 School Boards in Kenosha County flipped to Conservative control.
  • Conservative Jane Lang became the second female Mayor in the City of Neenah's history while winning in a city President Biden won by over 1,000 votes in 2020.
  • Conservatives in the City of Pewaukee saw phenomenal success as they won the mayoral election and their 3 target aldermanic races. 
  • Waukesha, Washington, and Langlade County all won over 80% of their targeted races across their respective Counties. 
    • Waukesha had over 170 candidates across the County. 
  • Conservatives in Rock County won almost 90% of the County Board races they were targeting, ultimately flipping the County Board their way. They also elected conservatives to School Boards in their two major Democratic cities of Beloit and Janesville.
