La Follette defeated Republican mortgage officer Jay Schroeder in Tuesday's elections.

Republicans over the years have stripped the secretary of state office of almost all of its powers. They also relocated the post to a tiny office in the state Capitol's basement.

La Follette campaigned mostly on Democratic talking points, saying he supports working people and wants to expand access to health care as well as restore civility to politics.

Famous Wisconsin progressive "Fighting Bob" La Follette was Doug La Follette's great-uncle.
