Let's take a look a Johnson. He was a much bigger business owner than Westlake; both men started their companies by themselves or with a single partner. Johnson spent milllions and Westlake spent $100,000. Johnson worked the official party branches, and Westlake worked state fairs. I think both would've been a good choice for Wisconsin, but now, it's Johnson all the way. He's polling about even with Feingold, though Feingold remains popular.
For GOP governor, Scott Walker beat Mark Neumann, 57-41 with 40% of precincts reporting. Walker spent 2 terms in Congress in the early 90's, and has spent years preparing for this bid.
