Thompson 'Confident' in chances Tuesday


LA CROSSE, WISCONSIN (WXOW)-- Tommy Thompson spent Monday campaigning in western Wisconsin and made a stop in La Crosse.

Thompson was joined by Gov. Scott Walker at Mid-City Steel, where he met with workers and toured the facility.

At the stop Thompson said while campaigning this weekend, his car was severely damaged after it hit a deer. He was not in the car at the time. But, he joked he got a deer on the opening weekend of the hunting season.

"The car was so demolished that of course the radiator was caved in so we couldn't drive the car," Thompson said. "So they towed the car up to Antigo, where it is now where it's getting fixed hopefully. Nobody was hurt and I was in the bus, not in the car. But it did a lot of damage. I think the deer was named Tammy Baldwin but I'm not sure."

If Thompson wins, Wisconsin would have two Republican U.S. senators for the first time since the 1950's.

Sen. Herb Kohl's seat hasn't been held by a Republican since Joe McCarthy in 1957.
