    A sign is seen in the snow outside the state Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin after protesters took over after Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate on Wednesday side-stepped a boycott by opposition Democrats and approved curbs on union powers in an 18-to-1 vote March 9, 2011. Political money has poured into Wisconsin in recent months - not for the presidential or Senate races but for a state vote getting national billing as a battle for the interests of the middle class. On one side are conservatives from across the country who back Republican Governor Scott Walker, a darling of the right since his 2011 crusade to rein in government spending by eliminating most collective bargaining rights for public employees. On the other are Democrats and union backers conducting a grassroots drive to collect more than a million signatures in a heated campaign to recall Walker. Photo taken March 9, 2011.
