Senate Race in Wisconsin
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Republican Tommy Thompson is expressing optimism about his chances in the race for the U.S. Senate against Democrat Tammy Baldwin.
While Thompson was talking about the race Monday on WTMJ-AM radio in Milwaukee, Baldwin was speaking at a rally for President Barack Obama in Madison before tens of thousands of people.
Thompson says he has logged 1,200 miles in the last three days and "the excitement is there." He says polls showing him behind to Baldwin do not pick up the enthusiasm he sees in the Republican base.
Baldwin says the election offers a choice between two visions of America, and she and Obama are fighting for the middle class.
She urged those at the rally to get out and vote on Tuesday.
