MILWAUKEE (AP) -- State Rep. Leah Vukmir has defeated Jim Sullivan to take his seat in the Wisconsin Senate.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting the Republican Vukmir had 54 percent of the vote to the Democratic Sullivan's 45 percent. Both are from Wauwatosa.

Republicans have had their sights on the 42-year-old Sullivan, a former Wauwatosa alderman, since he rode a national Democratic surge to his first Senate term in 2006.

The 52-year-old Vukmir was first elected to the Assembly in 2002. A pediatric nurse, she sat on the Assembly's education and health care reform committees this session. She gave up her seat to challenge Sullivan.
