As President Donald Trump’s chances of again winning Wisconsin dim, Republican hopes of winning a veto-proof majority in the Legislature are also fading.
Democrats are still playing defense in the Senate, where they are defending three highly competitive seats, but Republicans are retrenching in the Assembly and could lose seats in the Milwaukee suburbs depending on how well Trump performs.
Republicans are expected to retain control of both chambers even if former Vice President Joe Biden wins the state partly because of Republican-gerrymandered legislative districts that will be redrawn after this election as they are every 10 years to account for population changes. Republicans also enjoy the advantage of their voters being more widely spread out across the state.
