Wanggaard says conservatives energized by chance to go to polls

A few miles south of John Lehman's election night party, supporters of Sen. Van Wanggaard are gathering at Buona Vita Pizzeria.

There are quite a few more supporters on hand, compared to Lehman's party about 30 minutes ago, and they are cheering loudly as early results come in.

Loud cheers went up as the TVs flashed that NBC had called the guv race for Scott Walker, although some supporters seem to be waiting for more results to come in before getting too excited.

Wanggaard is already on hand and chants of "go Van go" echoed through the restaurant as he did interviews with local TV stations.

The senator told WisPolitics he attributes the energy in the room to conservatives that hadn't had an on opportunity to voice their opinions until today. He said they had a small chance in the primary, but nothing like the general election.

"Now these people are finally getting to have a choice," Wanggaard said.
