Democrat Tony Evers is the apparent winner of Wisconsin’s gubernatorial election, denying Republican Gov. Scott Walker a third term, NBC News projects.
He hammered Walker for his support of repealing the Affordable Care Act and potentially jeopardizing insurance coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
Walker repeatedly promised to shield insurance coverage for those residents of his state, despite his government’s support for a lawsuit challenging Obamacare’s constitutionality.
Walker, a conservative stalwart who took on public employee unions, was one of the several Republicans who fell to Trump in the 2016 GOP primary.
