There's nothing like election season in Wisconsin, which goes on and on and on.

Tuesday's latest installment saw voters trudging to the polls to decide special elections in the 1st Senate District in the northeast and the 42nd Assembly District north of Madison.

Would the blue wave roll on? The red wall stand firm?

On paper, it was a split decision.

Democrat Caleb Frostman defeated Rep. Andre Jacque (R-De Pere) in the Senate race, while Republican Jon Plumer defeated Ann Groves Lloyd for the Assembly seat.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) said on twitter that the Plumer victory was evidence that the blue wave was just a trickle in the Assembly.

Jon Plumer wins! In the Wisconsin State Assembly it seems to be a #bluetrickle#redwall
