MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin State Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald says he feels confident a strong Republican voter turnout in southeastern Wisconsin will bring him the party's nomination for U.S. Senate next Tuesday.
Fitzgerald still trails the rest of the four candidate field in every poll, but he has gained momentum in the last month.
The latest Marquette Law School Poll shows Fitzgerald getting 13 percent of the vote, 15 points behind frontrunner Tommy Thompson.
The Government Accountability Board projects a 20 percent voter turnout for the August 14 primary, but Fitzgerald expects it to be less than that.
He believes the lower the turnout, the better his chances are, because he is polling well in southeastern Wisconsin, which traditionally sends the highest number of Republican voters to the polls.
