It's a high-profile slot in a race that could help determine whether Democrats maintain majority control of the Senate.

Polls show Thompson, the former four-term governor, with a lead over Baldwin, who has been in Congress since 1999.

Obama won Wisconsin by 14 points in 2008, but polls show the race is much tighter this year against Republican Mitt Romney and his running mate, Wisconsin native Paul Ryan.
