MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wisconsin voters are just warming up.
The national political spotlight promises to be hotter than normal this year, considering the series of contests in the state that serve as tests on issues confronting the country as a whole. And that's after Tuesday's Republican presidential primary, which effectively could end the race for the nomination.
Energized Republicans sense opportunities they haven't seen in a generation to complete a turnaround.
'You have an incredibly engaged and active electorate right now in Wisconsin,' said Mark Graul, a Republican strategist in the state. 'That will certainly hold through to November.'
They see the chance to turn back a national effort to recall Gov. Scott Walker in a June election stemming from the first-term Republican's aggressive effort to strip public employee unions of power, and to pick a strong U.S. Senate nominee in August whose victory in November would give Wisconsin two GOP seats for the first time since 1957.
