Thompson Wins Wisconsin Senate Primary -- AP.

  • With 82 percent of precincts reporting, former Gov. Tommy Thompson has 35 percent to businessman Eric Hovde's 30  percent, former Rep. Mark Neumann's 23 percent, and state Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald's 12 percent. The AP has called the race for Thompson.
  • Thompson's win is a victory for the establishment over the tea party movement. Opponents had attacked the former four-term governor as a moderate, claiming he supported President Obama's health care law. Neumann had the backing of the Club for Growth, Tea Party Express and Sen. Jim DeMint.
  • Thompson faces Democratic Rep. Tammy Baldwin, who was unopposed for the Democratic nomination. Republicans have emphasized Baldwin's liberal voting record, and Thompson's history of appealing to moderate Democrats and independents make him a strong general election candidate.
