Final push to Election Day for both Wisconsin U.S. Senate candidates

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Thompson was campaigning around the state with Governor Scott Walker Monday – while Thompson’s opponent Tammy Baldwin hitched her political wagon to President Obama.

Baldwin spoke to almost 18,000 people at the president’s rally in Madison that featured Bruce Springsteen.

Baldwin said her race gives voters two very different visions for America. She says she’ll fight for the middle class, while Thompson would cater to the special interests.

Most recent independent polls either have the race tied, or they give Baldwin a very slight lead.

Thompson said the polls don’t capture the enthusiasm Republicans are getting this fall. He said the race comes down to leadership – and Walker said Thompson has the better record for balancing budgets and getting things done.

Both Republicans also said the momentum from the governor’s recall election – which Walker won by 7 points in June – would carry over Tuesday. Walker said the recall supporters, “woke a sleeping giant.”

Thompson said one of his campaign cars hit a deer near Shawano Sunday – and the former governor joked that he got his deer before the gun season begins.
