Romney gains on Obama in Wisconsin


(WQOW) - Things are tightening in Wisconsin and the candidates have taken note. Wisconsin is proving to be what we've said all along, a key battleground state for the upcoming election.

A poll by Quinnipiac University shows Mitt Romney gaining two points in the state. The President now leads his challenger 50% to 47%. With increased focus on Wisconsin -- the number two on the Obama Biden ticket was in La Crosse Friday. Congressman Paul Ryan will be back in his home state Monday, to attend a town hall at Carroll University.

And in another race that continues to tighten, the race for the open U.S. Senate seat in Wisconsin. Currently Representative Tammy Baldwin is leading former Governor Tommy Thompson 48% to 46%.
