Wisconsin Democrats see a win in special election split

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Democrats have flipped one of two open legislative seats in a pair of special elections.

Democrat Caleb Frostman defeated Republican state Rep. Andre Jacque in the 1st Senate District. Republican Jon Plumer, however, defeated Democrat Ann Groves Lloyd in the 42nd Assembly District.

Republicans still control both the Senate and Assembly. The Legislature isn't expected to reconvene until January, which means Frostman and Plumer probably won't vote on anything before they have to run for re-election in November. Both Jacque and Lloyd have registered to run this fall, setting up rematches in each district.

Still, Democrats say Frostman's win shows they've got momentum heading into November.
