Harsdorf says win reaffirms GOP agenda

State Sen. Sheila Harsdorf, R-River Falls, called her win in the 10th SD a reaffirmation of the GOP agenda in Madison.

“I think what we saw today in the 10th Senate District is people stood with us as we made the tough decisions and recognize that we’re heading in the right direction,” Harsdorf said.

With all precincts reporting, Harsdorf had 37,099 votes, or 58 percent, to 27,250 votes, or 42 percent, according to unofficial returns.

Moore, a River Falls teacher, ripped “millions in outside money” that she said made outlandish claims about her. She said the odds were against her from the start as she took on an incumbent who she accused of not being interested in running an issues-oriented campaign.

“What I hope she hears is 27,000 people turned out in the summer to say they were dissatisfied with her work and she needs to listen, not just to her friends,” Moore said.

Harsdorf said it’s clear that you don’t please everyone in an election. But the results to her clearly show voters are seeing the reforms Republicans passed this year to change the way government operates are working.

With Sen. Alberta Darling, R-River Hills, expected to win her race, Republicans are looking at coming back to the Senate with a 17-16 majority, depending on what happens in the recall elections of two Dem senators in one week. She said she expected the focus of the caucus to remain the same.

“I think we’re going to keep the focus on growing our economy and creating an environment in which we see job growth,” she said.
