Even the landslide victories had to wait their turn on a busy mid-term election across the nation on Tuesday night.
The long wait for some counties muted the celebration for members of the Republican Party at an event organized by the Rep. Mike Gallagher campaign. Even with winning over 70 percent of the vote, it wasn't until almost 10 p.m. that he took to the stage and spoke about the common sense approach in Wisconsin that needs to make its way to Washington D.C.
It was not until after 10:30 p.m. that Door and Kewaunee County results came through, paving the way for not only Gallagher won, but State Rep. Joel Kitchens and State Sen. Andre Jacque had also won their elections. Door County featured tighter races between candidates but leaned more Democratic. Kewaunee County showed more support for Republican candidates, in some cases by an almost 2-1 ratio. Races that were too close to call at midnight leaned in favor of U.S. Senator Ron Johnson and Governor Tony Evers. You can see how Door and Kewaunee counties voted by clicking this link.
