From Scott Walker emerging as the only governor to survive a recall and Paul Ryan being selected as Mitt Romney's running mate for president, a national spotlight shined bright on Wisconsin this year.
Divisive — from recalls to recounts, it became a buzzword for Wisconsin politics in 2012. A national spotlight shined bright on Wisconsin this year, as it was a historic one for politics. Scott Walker became the first governor in U.S. history to survive a recall. U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Janesville became a national household name after being selected as Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's running mate and state voters elected Tammy Baldwin to fill Herb Kohl's seat, making in her the first openly gay woman in the U.S. Senate. On the heels of a slew of recall elections and large-scale protests on the steps of the state Capitol building, the year kicked off with more recall attempts, including one aimed at Gov. Scott Walker. …

Greenfield voters also favored Tommy Thompson over Tammy Baldwin in the U.S. Senate race.
Greenfield voters turned out to the polls in huge numbers for Tuesday's presidential election, but a majority of them went to be disappointed. Four years after voting in favor of Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election, Greenfield voters preferred the president's opponent Tuesday. Gov. Mitt Romney carried 51.2 percent of Greenfield's vote, compared to 47.9 percent for Obama as 91.6 percent of Greenfield's 22,464 registered voters turned out on or before Tuesday's showdown. Of them, 10,411 voted for Romney and 9,744 for Obama. The state and the nation, however, did not agree with Greenfield's majority as Obama carried Wisconsin and won a second term. Four years ago, Obama and Joe Biden garnered 10,012 votes in Greenfield; Republicans…

President Barack Obama, on his way to re-election win's Wisconsin's 10 electoral votes after defeating former Gov. Mitt Romney Tuesday.
President Barack Obama has won Wisconsin, considered by political pundits as a major swing state that would go a long way in deciding the 2012 presidential election. Obama was declared the state’s projected winner over Gov. Mitt Romney. Obama and running mate Joe Biden overcame the popularity uptick Romney undoubtedly received when he announced Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan of Janesville as his vice presidential candidate this summer. With the victory, Obama picked up 10 important electoral votes toward the 270 required to win the presidency. At approximately 10:15 p.m., CNN declared Obama a winner in Ohio, essentially giving him the election. As of 1 a.m. Wednesday, with 91 percent of the vote counted in Wisconsin, Obama was leading …

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate calls on the help of volunteers to help her in tightly contested races.
With only day away from the election, U.S. Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin was hitting the phones Monday at a Greendale home set up for canvassers. Baldwin was personally making calls to volunteer canvassers to ask for their help tomorrow as she goes up against former Gov. Tommy Thompson. “One of the conversations I had melted my heart,” Baldwin said. “She was so excited. She was at the Obama rally in Milwaukee and couldn’t believe we were having a conversation.” Tom Spehert, owner of the home were the canvass took place, said he volunteered to let his house be used because he is committed to getting Tammy Baldwin and President Barack Obama elected. The campaign approached Spehert about using his home as a canvassing office because during …
We've got all the races that will appear on the ballot, where your polling location is and much, much more.
Though their names are separated by just a vowel, Republican Tommy Thompson and Democrat Tammy Baldwin have vastly different visions for the future. It's resulted in one of the most bitter and tightly contested races for a Wisconsin U.S. Senate seat.
Editor's Note: This article was updated at 4:50 p.m. Monday to include comments from Tommy Thompson after they were received. The most expensive U.S. Senate campaign in Wisconsin history, and one of the most watched in the nation, is down to its last day — and by most accounting is down to the wire, with no significant advantage to either candidate. Polls on the race between Gov. Tommy Thompson and U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin swung wildly since Thompson emerged as victor in the Republican primary. Thompson initially built a double-digit lead, only to see that reversed in Baldwin's favor. But within the past month of the campaign, those numbers have drawn back to a near dead heat, with perhaps a slight edge toward Baldwin but falling within the…
