Though some Republicans pinned Dallet's win on massive turnout in liberal Dane County, Dallet still ran a competitive race outside of liberal centers of the state.
Screnock was endorsed by Walker and backed by about $400,000 from the state GOP. It supported Trump in 2016-the first time it'd favored a Republican presidential candidate in 32 years-after electing Republican Scott Walker as governor in 2010.
"After the results were announced Walker sent out several tweets, criticizing Democrats and warning Republicans of the risk of a "#BlueWave". Walker is seeking a third term in November.
Although the race was viewed by some as a bellwether, results of past Supreme Court elections have not consistently proven to be predictive of what will happen in November. "People are exhausted of special interests ruling and wanted to speak up".
Dallet's victory cuts conservative control of the state's highest court from 5-2 to 4-3. It's also why it took three judicial orders for Walker to stop hiding from voters and hold special elections in Senate District 1 and Assembly District 42.

In addition to this, Martha Laning, Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairwoman, issued a warning to Walker and called it a "huge loss" for him as his "endorsement, philosophy and politics were on the ballot".
Screnock told the crowd at his election watch party he was unable to get in touch with Dallet to congratulate her on her win.
Scholz said Dallet was able to reach voters in areas of the state former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost in 2016.
Screnock, 48, was appointed judge by Walker in 2015. That's why Republicans worked so hard to prop up an unqualified candidate who is best known for defending Walker's efforts to gerrymander legislative districts and strip collective bargaining rights from working people.
Both candidates argued the other couldn't be trusted to serve as an independent voice on the state's highest court because of the partisans supporting their campaigns.
