State senator reacts to blue wave comments

Posted: Updated:
La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

Wisconsin Senator Jennifer Shilling says she believes voters want a change at the capitol after seeing the same party in control for eight years.

Political analysts call the upcoming midterm election contentious for Republicans to keep their seats not only in Washington but in state government as well.

Governor Scott Walker dubbed it the "blue wave" and says he is campaigning harder to counter "the anger and hatred" from liberal voters.

Shilling says Democrats can't count the wins before the ballots cast, but she's heard from voters.

"There is something stirring in the electorate and they're looking for change, positive change," Shilling explained. "I think there's been an overreach by one party being in control of everything for eight years."

The fall general election takes place on November 6.
