The “WisPoliticos” of 2018 have been selected.

Voters in the annual contest selected Gov.-elect Tony Evers as the Dem “WisPolitico” of the year and U.S. Rep.-elect Bryan Steil as the GOP “WisPolitico” of 2018.

Evers beat Gov. Scott Walker to win back the governor’s office for Dems after eight years, while Steil won southeastern Wisconsin’s open 1st Congressional District after House Speaker Paul Ryan’s surprise retirement.

Voters also picked the Safe Transportation Over Politics “Scotholes” campaign as Dem ad of the year.

And they picked U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy’s “Just Like Dad” spot as the GOP ad of the year.

Nominees were based on feedback from subscribers, who then joined web viewers and social media followers in voting on the awards.
