Democrat Caleb Frostman has won an open seat in northeastern Wisconsin's 1st Senate District.

Frostman defeated Republican state Rep. Andre Jacque in Tuesday's election. The win doesn't give Democrats control of the Senate. The GOP still holds an 18-15 advantage. But it marks another in a string of Democratic victories this year.

Democrats flipped an open state Senate seat in northwestern Wisconsin in January and liberal-backed Rebecca Dallet won a statewide race for state Supreme Court in April.

Frostman will have to run again in November to keep the seat. Jacque and Republican Bill Nauta have registered to run in the fall.
