Wisconsin voters have until 8 p.m. to cast their Election 2012 ballots, but voting in other key swing states ends as much as three hours before then, and exit polling could provide an early indication of whether President Obama or Mitt Romney wins the White House.

At 7 p.m. swing states Florida, Pennslvania and New Hampshire close their polls. The final two swing states, Nevada and Iowa, close at 9 p.m. CST.

The candidates agreed to square off once in Wausau and twice in Milwaukee over the next six weeks.
Tommy Thompson and Tammy Baldwin have agreed to three televised debates prior to the Nov. 6 general election for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Herb Kohl. Two debates will be in Milwaukee and one in Wausau: "We need a new direction for our country, a direction that leaves our country in better shape for our children and grandchildren," said Thompson, the former governor and GOP nominee, in a press release Monday. "Voters deserve to hear my opponent defend the record $16 trillion in debt driven by out-of-control government spending." Baldwin, a U.S. Representative, aims to keep the seat for the Democrats as the GOP tries to gain control of the Senate with an eye on repealing the Affordable Health Care Act. She agreed to three debates…

Previous polls suggest former governor Tommy Thompson is in the lead, but the key Tea Party endorsement went to Mark Neumann and businessman Eric Hovde is liked by Patch's GOP insiders.

Tuesday’s primary election will select that nominee from among Tommy Thompson, Mark Neumann, Eric Hovde and Jeff Fitzgerald. And unlike many primaries, it’s tough to say today who will come out on top. Thompson, the former governor, topped the latest Marquette University poll but plenty of voters continued to call themselves undecided. Our own …

Instead of targeting Democrat Tammy Baldwin or attacking Obamacare, GOP candidates for senate here in Wisconsin are going after each other, but Eric Hovde said he's going to try and stay positive.
With only a month to go before the Aug. 14 partisan primary for US Senate, GOP candidates this week unleashed a series of negative ads against each other. Up until a few days ago, the candidates mostly took shots at Democrat Tammy Baldwin and Obamacare. But, since the results of polls from Public Policy Polling and Marquette University were released and a new ad from Club for Growth, which supports former US Rep. Mark Neumann, hit the airwaves, Republicans have come out swinging. The poll from PPP shows businessman Eric Hovde leading the GOP field with former Gov. Tommy Thompson a close second. Results from the Marquette poll put Thompson on top with Hovde in second. Former US Rep. Mark Neumann and state Rep. Scott Fitzgerald trail …
