It was a tight race throughout the evening, but Wisconsin voters chose to go with a familiar face to challenge U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin in November.
There was only one thing certain heading into the U.S. Senate Republican primary election Tuesday — and it was that nothing was certain. Throughout the state’s five elections this year, perhaps no election gave voters such a perplexing choice as the four GOP candidates for U.S. Senate. Every candidate received an endorsement of some sort, and a clear favorite never emerged. But by the end of the night, former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson did something he had done many times before — win an election. Final unofficial results from the Associated Press show that Thompson posted a 3 percentage-point victory over his top rival, hedge fund manager and businessman Eric Hovde. Finishing in the second tier were state Assembly Speaker Jeff …
With 35 percent voter turnout in Brookfield, Patch has the results of how Brookfield residents voted for the U.S. Senate, 13th State Assembly District, Waukesha County Clerk and Waukesha County Register of Deeds.
With voter turnout at 35 percent, Brookfield residents choose former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy G. Thompson, slightly over newcomer Eric Hovde, 30 percent to 27 percent. Statewide, Thompson won the hotly contested Republican primary for the shot to compete for Democratic U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl's seat in Washington. He will compete with Democratic U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin for a crucial Senate seat that could swing the balance of control in Washington D.C. In addition to Thompson and Hovde, a hedge fund manager and businessman, voters weighed whether to pick state Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald or former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann. With all wards counted, Brookfield residents made these votes: 3,433 votes: Thompson 3,133 votes: Hovde 1,620 votes: …

Tea Party groups across the state, and even some county Republican parties, don't just support one Republican candidate for US Senate.
Mark Neumann's recent endorsement by the Tea Party Express probably made it look like he is the one and only Tea Party candidate going into Tuesday's senate primary. Don't be so sure. The reason the TPE threw their lot in with Neumann was because he claims he understands what's wrong in Washington and how to fix it. “Mark Neumann is a proven fiscal conservative,” said Amy Kremer, who founded the organization that is now the the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee. “He understands Washington is the problem, not the answer… Mark will be the next senator from Wisconsin. I firmly believe that.” Another Tea Party PAC - Wisconsin Liberty - also came out in support of Mark Neumann. In a press release issued Monday, Neumann is …
Among Wisconsin's influential conservatives, Jeff Fitzgerald now has plurality support over Tommy Thompson, Eric Hovde and Mark Neumann, but they still see Thompson as their best bet for defeating Democratic candidate Tammy Baldwin in November.
In the primary season, a lot can change in a month. A recent Patch survey of influential Wisconsin conservatives proved just that. A plurality of Wisconsin Republican insiders now favor Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald for their party's U.S. Senate nominee, according to the unscientific survey. Fitzgerald has generally polled behind former Gov. Tommy Thompson and businessmen Mark Neumann and Eric Hovde throughout the race. In fact, a similar Patch survey in mid-July of the same political insiders showed Hovde as the favorite with Thompson close behind and Fitzgerald trailing at 10 percent, a spread that mirrored most representative polling data. Thursday's survey, which asked for whom the 53 respondents would vote if the election were held…
