EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A Wisconsin Senate seat is up for grabs today in a special election for northwestern Wisconsin's 10th Senate District.

Republican Representative Adam Jarchow and Somerset Democrat Patty Schachtner will go head to head on the ballot.

Wisconsin Democrats are hoping anti-Trump backlash gives them a shot to win, but President Donald Trump and Mitt Romney easily won the district in the last two elections.

A victory for Republicans would give the party a 19-13 advantage in the Senate.

This marks the first time a Democrat and Republican have faced one another in a Wisconsin election since President Trump took office.
