Wis. Dems: Internal Polls Show Us Winning The State Senate


The three races where the Dems claim to be clearly ahead are the seats of GOP state Sens. Dan Kapanke, Randy Hopper and Luther Olsen. The races that are said to be close are the seats of GOP state Sens. Alberta Darling, Sheila Harsdorf and Robert Cowles.

TPM asked a follow-up regarding internal polls for the two extra races for August 16.

"Our two Democratic incumbents, Bob Wirch and Jim Holperin, are in very, very strong shape," said Tate. "They are better well known than our opponents, they are better liked than their opponents."

Tate also added: "The Republican candidates are simply not palatable to the electorate, and our Democratic senators are going to be re-elected."
