On the road to the Senate with Baldwin, Thompson

WisPolitics.com reporter Jason Smathers spent a day on the campaign trail with U.S. Senate candidates Tammy Baldwin and Tommy Thompson as they entered the final two weeks of their contentious general election campaign.

U.S. Rep. Baldwin, D-Madison, traveled to Janesville and Waukesha on Oct. 20. She focused on turning out the early vote in the Rock County city, where she was joined by retiring U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Milwaukee.

"In my mind the only poll that matters is the one that culminates on Nov. 6, but it shows some real encouraging news, some momentum in this U.S. Senate race. And we have an edge. We're in a narrow lead," Baldwin told supporters before a day of canvassing. "And we have 17 more days to keep that momentum going."

Thompson, meanwhile, was in the Fox Valley on Oct. 22 for stops in Green Bay and Appleton. He spoke to an audience of more than 100 conservative-leaning women at a Green Bay Women in Politics luncheon, touting his upbringing in Elroy and recalling sitting down with "welfare mothers" at the governor's mansion and offering to help them find a job and end welfare in the state.

"I'm no different than anybody in this room, everybody has a story of how you got to where you are today," the former governor said. "Everybody. And none of you would have that story if you were not born and raised in America."
