Big Win in Door County Carries Frostman to State Senate

Caleb Frostman pulled off a significant win in Door County and was close in three others on the way to a victory over Andre Jacque in the special election for the First District Seat in the State Senate Tuesday. In doing so, Frostman became the first democrat in 40 years to take the seat which previously was held by Frank Lasee. Lasee resigned to take a job in the Walker administration. In Door County, Frostman, the former head of the Door County Economic Development Corporation, finished with 4,712 votes to 2,804 for Jacque. Frostman, who also defeated Jacque in Calumet County, tallied second place finishes in Brown, Manitowoc, and Kewaunee Counties, but the margins were not enough to eat into his 1,900 vote victory in Door County. Frostman will try to retain the seat in the November election.
