MADISON (WKOW) -- A poll recently released shows a tight race for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin.
Public Policy Polling released its latest results Tuesday that show what it calls a three-way tie in the race. Eric Hovde leads with 25% of the vote compared to 25% for Tommy Thompson and Mark Neumann. Jeff Fitzgerald received 13% of the vote.
PPP surveyed 400 likely Republican primary voters between on July 30 and 31. The margin of error for the survey is +-4.9%.
When PPP did the same poll in February, Thompson got 39% of the vote. By early June he had dropped to 29%.

Some of the candidates' campaign managers are weighing in on the results. Chip Englander, Campaign Manager for Mark Neumann says, "This poll confirms what we've hearing all over Wisconsin. Voters are sending a clear message, Mark Neumann is the proven conservative in the race for Senate."
Hovde's Campaign Manager, Joe Fadness says, "Despite a barrage of negative and misleading attacks from Tommy Thompson, Mark Neumann, Tammy Baldwin and a number of deep-pocketed Washington, D.C. super PACs, Eric is continuing to lead in the polls.
"Millions of dollars in attack ads from desperate career politicians and out-of-state special interest groups has not stalled Eric's momentum. While Governor Thompson continues to slide, Eric remains well-positioned for victory on August 14th."
