MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Governor Scott Walker says complacency and fatigue among Republican voters is one of his biggest concerns as he faces re-election in less than 10 weeks. Walker addressed his concerns yesterday on WTMJ-AM when asked about a poll released on Wednesday indicating that Democrats were more enthused about the upcoming election that Republicans. The Marquette University Law School poll showed the race between Walker and Democrat Mary Burke to be a statistical dead heat.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A recount that did not include 110 missing ballots has flipped the results in a Democratic primary for a state Senate seat.
