Wisconsin Primary Results

UNDATED (WIFR) -- Former Milwaukee County Executive and State Senator Scott Walker defeated former U.S. Senate candidate Mark Neumann in Tuesday’s republican primary despite the fact that Neumann spent about four million dollars of his own money in the primary campaign.

Walker matches up with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett who easily won his democratic primary with 90 percent of the vote. November’s winner will replace Jim Doyle, who announced earlier this year that he would not be seeking a third term.

In the senate race incumbent democrat Russ Feingold has been out-spent in each of his previous three campaigns. And it's almost a certainty it will happen again this year. Successful businessman Ron Johnson has already spent about five million dollars of his own money and after winning Tuesday’s republican primary, the spending is expected only to go higher. Early polls suggest that this will be one of the tightest Senate races in the country and it could decide which party gets control of the Senate.

    I've never seen it mentioned in the news but Scott Walkers parents grew up in this area. His dad is from Rockford and his mom is from Belvidere. Her parents farmed on State st near NIU and then south of Belvidere until they retired. When they moved to town his grandad rode a bycicle across town to work to save money. Frugality is a family tradition.
