Republicans Fire Up Voters At Rally In Western Wisconsin

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson, U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy, former U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman and others spoke at a Saturday rally in Hudson, Wisconsin.

Several high-profile Republicans rallied in western Wisconsin Saturday in front of hundreds of people in support of presidential candidate Mitt Romney and other GOP candidates.

The early evening event featured the following speakers:

  • Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani
  • Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker
  • U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson
  • Former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson
  • U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy and his wife Rachel Campos-Duffy
  • Former U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman
  • Brad Courtney, chairman, Republican Party of Wisconsin
  • State Rep. Dean Knudson of Hudson
  • Virginia State Rep. Barbara Comstock
  • U.S. Rep. Martha Roby of Alabama

Wisconsin is considered a swing state in the presidential race, and it also features a very close races between former Republican Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson and Democratic U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin for Herb Kohl's U.S. Senate seat.

After recent redistricting, Hudson is now in Wisconsin's Seventh Congressional District, and first-term Republican U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy is facing a tough challenge from former Democratic State Sen. Pat Kreitlow.

All the races will be decided on Tuesday, Nov. 6, when voters across the nation head to the polls.

Obama up by 4.2 in WI, according to the Real Clear Politics averaging of all polls (even if you believe some to be left or right leaning): http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/wi/wisconsin_romney_vs_obama-1871.html But I have to wonder what any Romney voters are thinking. Who knows Romney better than anybody? How about the state who actually voted him in before, as Governor. So let's take a moment to look at how the only state who has any working knowledge about how Romney governs, is voting... http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/ma/massachusetts_romney_vs_obama-1804.html The average of all polls, whether you believe some to be conservative or liberal leaning, still gives Obama a 20+ point lead. So my question is, why aren't more people paying attention to this? You can't shrug it off that it is MA and they always lean this way, because they voted Romney himself in as a Republican. The reality is that Romney can't even get close in this election in the only state that he has governed before, where the people actually know what you get if you vote for Romney. If he was the success that he pretends to be in MA, don't you think that he would be leading in MA or at the very least, have a close race going on there?

Watts- Seeing as how you aren't even from Wisconsin, you have absolutely no clue of what is happening in Wisconsin and I believe you and many other Obama supporters are sorely misguided. You can read my national analisys on today's Caledonia Patch. In Wisconsin, ther is no reason to believe that Obama' outcome will be any different than the June 6th recall results that the Dems had. If anything, Republicans have been more motivated since then and have had quite the political machine for turnout, Throw out the Marquette poll as it modeled a +8 Dem, while the June 6th recall, an election that showed the highest motivation for the Dems, which resulted in a +7 for Republicans, If that is the case this time, Romney easily takes Wisconsin. But really, is this the best the Dems can do is have bloggers from Belmont-Naples come in and troll? Don't be deceived by the polls, but look at what lies underneath and you will find that this election has the akings of a Romney landslide.
