Too many Democrats snoozed their way through Wisconsin's Supreme Court race (Dane County edition)

An election that is nonpartisan in name only.

Sources:  Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (2018, 2019)

Hagedorn received 26% more votes than Screnock.  Neubauer received 11% more votes than Dallet. 

According to the unofficial tally, Brian Hagedorn has a 5,960 vote lead over Lisa Neubauer.  Hagedorn received 6,464 more votes than Screnock did in 2018.  Hmm.

Exhibit C, Clark County, shown above.  Of the 20 counties with the biggest swings in a conservative direction over the 2018 court race, all but two were in those two northern TV markets. 

A Red Warning Sign:  A Wisconsin election brings double disappointment for Democrats.  (The New York Times, 4/5/2019).
Wisconsin Supreme Court races are statewide, and Hagedorn’s win suggests that Wisconsin remains up for grabs heading into President Trump’s re-election campaign. Republican voters now seem quite energized, and turnout was high in conservative areas, like Waukesha County, just west of Milwaukee. “The GOP’s win in Wisconsin Supreme Court race showed a base that’s waking up,” Reid Wilson of The Hill noted.  [emphasis added]
