** On April 4, Wisconsinites who vote in the 8th District (Brown, Calumet, Door, Kewaunee, Marinette, Menominee, Oconto, Outagamie, Shawano, Waupaca and part of Winnebago County) will also be voting to fill the Senate seat in their district. Jodi Habush Sinykin (D) is facing Dan Knodl (R) for the seat. If the GOP candidate wins the election, it will give Republicans a two-thirds majority in the Senate, which is enough votes to override gubernatorial vetoes and impeach civil officers.
