Door County was one of two Wisconsin counties to switch from red to blue in the Nov. 3 presidential election, giving Joe Biden 49.93 percent of the vote to Donald Trump’s 48.48 percent. It was the only surprise in a night when Republican incumbents sailed to reelection.
Mike Gallagher defeated Amanda Stuck to retain his 8th Congressional District seat for a third term with 63.98 percent of the vote, and Joel Kitchens earned his fourth term in the 1st Assembly District race with 61.84 percent of the vote.
Door County voters were largely united on the question of district maps, with 73.6 percent favoring the countywide referendum that asked whether the Wisconsin Legislature should create a nonpartisan procedure to prepare legislative and congressional district plans and maps. That question sailed through with 13,853 “yes” votes to 4,968 “no” votes.
