Scott Walker speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Md., Feb. 23, 2017.

Gov. Scott Walker and state Republicans woke up Wednesday sounding the alarm about a growing Democratic surge after Tuesday's double-digit trouncing by a Supreme Court candidate backed by liberals.

Those same "Big government special interests" that flooded Wisconsin with "distorted facts and misinformation" will next employ their winning strategy against him, he predicted. "Next, they'll target me and work to undo our bold reforms".

Walker, who is seeking a third term in November, issued a fundraising plea Wednesday morning and along with several tweets that Republicans should prepare for a tough election year - a similar warning Walker issued after a Democrat won a special Senate election in a northwest Wisconsin district Republicans had held since 2001.

Dallet defeated conservative Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock by an 11.5-percent margin, based on unofficial results. There are now six women on the seven member court.

Dallet, who has served as a judge for the Milwaukee County Circuit Court in Wisconsin, was first elected to the position in the year 2008. Dallet was supported by labor and teacher unions, most of the state's judges and a host of current and former Democratic officeholders. She will be sworn in as Justice on August 1.

"I don't think Republicans can walk around and just blow this off", said Brandon Scholz, a longtime Republican strategist who has worked on Supreme Court campaigns. 'I think people are exhausted of what's been going on in our state in terms of the money coming in to buy these elections and people spoke out tonight'.

Walker says the Dallet win shows "we are at risk of a Blue Wave in Wisconsin".

States with legal marijuana see fewer opioid prescriptions
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention more than 90 Americans a day die from opioid overdose. Although these drugs have addictive qualities, they are useful for reducing pain when taken correctly.

Turnout was the highest for a spring election since 2011 when it was 34 percent. Her win narrows the pro-Walker conservative majority on the court to 4 to 3 - and marks the first win by a liberal to an open seat since 1995. She was running for a seat now held by Michael Gableman.

Two other special legislative elections are coming this June, giving Democrats more chances to build momentum heading into the fall.

Screnock was appointed judge by Walker in 2015. Before that he was part of a team that defended Walker's Act 10 law that effectively ended collective bargaining for most public workers.

The expensive race was nonpartisan in name only, with reportedly over $2 million in ad spending.

The United States charges that the 60 Russians that it targeted are intelligence officers operating under diplomatic cover. Last week, the Russian foreign ministry announced tit-for-tat measure against these countries.

"There was nothing there for them (in 2016) and the Dallet campaign successfully reached them and made those people want to vote", he said.
