It's a new day in Wisconsin

Democrats win control of Wisconsin Senate

State Journal staff, AP

Wisconsin Democrats regained control of the state Senate early today, breaking Republicans' lock on the state Legislature.

State Democratic Party Chairman Joe Wineke announced just after midnight that Democrats had picked up at least three seats from Republicans, who had previously held a 19-14 majority.

"In case anybody's wondering, it's a new day in Wisconsin," Wineke said.

He said it was unclear if Democrats would have a one- vote or two-vote margin.

"It's very simple. There was a general Democratic tidal wave that swept through our races that no matter what we did we'd never be able to overcome," Gilkes said of the results.
