The district covers parts of nine counties – including Eau Claire, Dunn, Jackson and Trempealeau.

Three Democrats were on the ballot and Jeff Smith is the winner. 

"I know what it’s like on both sides of this: winning and losing. It’s really hard and I know it’s really difficult, but it means in the end that we’ll all have to come together the next day and the next week and continue to work for the betterment of our district and our state," Smith said.
