MADISON - Going into Tuesday's election, Republicans held the majority in the State Senate and State Assembly, plus the governor, state treasurer, and attorney general positions.
The GOP held on to both houses, but the other three seats were taken by Democrats.
Tony Evers will replace Governor Scott Walker, Josh Kaul will replace Attorney General Brad Schimel, and Sarah Godlewski will replace state treasurer Matt Adamczyk.
Tuesday night the party celebrated their victories.
"I think that this is actually an omen of what's to come for the rest of the ticket. Let's give it up for everybody on this incredible ticket, and we are ready to continue to fight and take back our state," said Godlewski to a crowd at an election party Tuesday night.
But since the GOP still has such a strong presence in the state legislature, whether the small blue wave in these three positions will have any effect on the direction of the state remains to be seen.
The attorney for Robin Mendez today tried to convince the jury that another man, one who was upset with Mendez's wife, could have been the one who killed her back in 1982. You'll hear some of the testimony from a witness who may have seen that man the night of the murder.
Plus, some Rhinelander residents have been without phone, internet and cable services for about 2 weeks, and they want some answers from Frontier. We'll bring you the details and talk with some of those frustrated customers.
We'll bring you this and more tonight on Newswatch 12 - news from where you live.
EAGLE RIVER - In thinking about which color goes best with their red superhero shirts Monday, Eagle River Walgreens employees decided white fit rather nicely. But getting chosen to fling pies filled with white whipped cream didn't exactly leave Bri Sandrone green with envy.
"I actually didn't want to, I wanted to have somebody else do it," Sandrone explained, with a laugh.
Wearing her "everyday superhero" cape and shirt, Sandrone found the courage to toss the pies in her bosses' faces.
RHINELANDER - One of the five Rhinelander employees who signed a letter of no confidence against City Administrator Daniel Guild submitted her letter of resignation on Monday.
Guild's assistant, Stephanie Rajnicek cited ongoing conflict, tension, and concerns about her future for resigning.
Her last day will be Friday, May 10th.
Rajnicek joined City Clerk Val Foley, Deputy Clerk Mary Stoll, Utility Billing Clerk Beth Mannikko, and Public Works Director Tim Kingman in signing the letter. It was submitted during a city council meeting on March 11.
