State Senate Leadership Remains


There will not be much change for Republican Party leadership in the Wisconsin state senate. Senator Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau was re-elected as majority leader, just days after Republicans picked up a seat over Democrats. Fitzgerald was a unanimous choice, running unopposed for the position he’s held since 2011.

Senator Roger Roth of Appleton will also continue as Senate President for the next two years. Republicans will return to session in 2019 with a 19-14 majority in the Senate, but will now have to work with a Democratic governor who has the power to veto any bills passed by the legislature.

Democratic Senator Jennifer Shilling of La Crosse was re-elected as minority leader. The Legislature will return for a lame duck session later this month or next.
