Liberal Milwaukee Court judge Rebecca Dallet defeated conservative Sauk County judge Michael Screnock in Tuesday's Wisconsin Supreme Court race, handing Democrats a major victory amid a brewing anti-Trump movement ahead of this year’s midterms.

Why it matters: This victory comes as the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), led by former Attorney General Eric Holder, is targeting GOP-controlled state governments in Wisconsin and other key battleground states as part of a broader effort to undercut Republicans’ sweeping control of the redistricting process ahead of the 2020 Census.
