Gov. Scott Walker warned his backers late Tuesday Wisconsin is at risk for a blue wave this fall after Milwaukee Judge Rebecca Dallet won a seat on the state Supreme Court.

After Sauk County Judge Michael Screnock, who was backed by conservatives and the state GOP, delivered his concession speech, Walker fired off a series of tweets warning what Dallet’s win means for November — and making a fundraising pitch.

He wrote the “Far Left is driven by anger & hatred — we must counter it with optimism & organization. Let’s share our positive story with voters & win in November.” Walker also warned he’ll be targeted by big-government special interests who will “work to undo our bold reforms.”

Walker also warned the risk of a blue wave “puts everything in jeopardy — balanced budgets, collective bargaining reforms, $8B in tax cuts, welfare reform & more.”

“We have a positive story to tell & we need conservatives to take action and stop a #BlueWave by getting out there and telling it,” Walker wrote.

The string of tweets finished with one that included a link to donate to Walker’s campaign.
