After seeing his candidate for the state Supreme Court soundly beaten by their liberal opponent, Scott Walker fears for November.
In a series of tweets on Wednesday morning, the Wisconsin governor tried to rally supporters by expressing concern over a #BlueWave forming in Wisconsin ahead of November's mid-term elections.
Walker is running for re-election as governor after winning by just over 5 points in 2014, but with Democratic candidates winning in special elections all over the country since President Donald Trump's election, his chances of a third-term are now under threat.
"Tonight's results show we are at risk of a #BlueWave in WI," Walker tweeted after Rebecca Dallet won election to the state Supreme Court by 12 points. "The Far Left is driven by anger & hatred – we must counter it with optimism & organization. Let's share our positive story with voters & win in November."
He blamed Tuesday's loss on "big government special interests" that he says "flooded Wisconsin with distorted facts & misinformation," and worries that "next, they'll target me and work to undo our bold reforms."
Time reports that Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairwoman Martha Laning said Dallet's win was a "huge loss" for Walker because his "endorsement, philosophy and politics were on the ballot."
Walker posted later tweets hailing his administration's achievements during his time i office.
