Baldwin Vs. Thompson In Wisconsin

I'll be following the subsequent polling with some interest here to see if I should donate money, because I'd really like to have Tammy Baldwin in the Senate.  But the result in the Republican primary isn't what I was hoping for.  Tea Party favorite Mark Neumann and self-financing neophyte Eric Hovde would've probably been easier to beat.  Not all the votes have been counted, but it looks like ex-Governor Tommy Thompson got 35% of the vote to 30% for Hovde to 23% for Neumann to 12% for Jeff Fitzgerald.

It's going to be a close race.  Baldwin and Thompson are currently running about even, but earlier polling has been favorable to Thompson, and this is the point when I'd expect Thompson's numbers to go up a little bit as the rest of the Republican Party rallies around their nominee.  We'll see what happens.
