In the 2022 midterms, the rightwing depended on gerrymandered maps and voter suppression laws upheld by rightwing state legislative majorities to help secure power in Wisconsin.
With help from our network and Vote Save America, our goal for 2022 in Wisconsin was to prevent a supermajority in the Wisconsin Assembly to preserve Governor Tony Evers’ veto power.
By providing support down the stretch, we prevented a rightwing supermajority with an extreme anti-democracy agenda by just 1,249 voters.
Flipping Senate District 8 would stop a veto-proof majority in the chamber. But the stakes are even higher than breaking a supermajority.
Dollars are pouring in for another special election, a State Supreme Court race that could break the Court’s current rightwing majority. But regardless of the results of that election, a supermajority in the Senate could impeach and remove a Justice from the Supreme Court.
The bottom line? Flipping this crucial Senate seat could very well protect a new majority in the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
