Progressive Takeover Congratulates Caleb Frostman on Wisconsin Special Election Victory
STURGEON BAY, WI — Progressive Takeover Executive Director Katie Miller released the following statement regarding the Wisconsin Special Election for Senate District 1.
“Congratulations to Democrat Caleb Frostman on tonight’s victory in Wisconsin’s Senate District 1. This is a historic night for Democrats, as yet another ‘red’ district turned blue. We look forward to keeping this seat in November and beyond.”
Frostman defeated his opponent by a margin of 2 points, a 19 point swing from the 2016 presidential election.
“Our $20,000 digital investment and on-the-ground field staff helped put Caleb over the edge. This was a hard-fought race where every voter contact made a difference,” said Miller.
Progressive Takeover has hired a Wisconsin State Director for their 2018 efforts and is expanding their Wisconsin staff rapidly. Progressive Takeover recently announced an initial $1 million program investment for 2018, targeting vulnerable state legislative races in Wisconsin and North Carolina.
Progressive Takeover is a political action committee that was founded on the idea that electoral success and political change start at the local level. They believe it is time to give state races the same energy and resources we invest in a presidential election.
