Baldwin, Thompson travel Wis. days before election


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Rep. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., made the trip to La Crosse Sunday.

The congresswoman is up against former Gov. Tommy Thompson for the U.S. Senate seat.

Baldwin's visit comes just one day after Sen. Al Franken, campaigned in La Crosse on her behalf.

After stopping in Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls, Baldwin stopped by the La Crosse democratic headquarters to encourage volunteers to keep making campaign phone calls and knocking on doors.

"You see all the polls that take place over time, but the only one that matters is the one on Nov. 6 and these volunteers are the ones who are talking to the voters, perhaps the last person who talks to them before they walk in and cast their vote. So, I'm deeply appreciative," Baldwin said.

Thompson also made the rounds Sunday, stopping in Hudson, Milwaukee and Green Bay.

The senate candidate tailgated at Lambeau Field in the early morning and told supporters that the Republican ticket has the momentum leading into Tuesday's election.

"I think the excitement and momentum is with me and I think there's a tremendous amount of people out there – a reservoir of good will that's saying Tommy's done it before, we know Tommy can do it again."

The latest Marquette Law School poll shows Baldwin with a four-point edge in the race.

A Wisconsin Public Radio Poll has Thompson up by three points.

Both polls were released last week.
