Results of UW poll on US Senate race due, Thursday AM


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The rhetoric is heating up between Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold and his leading Republican challenger. A new poll could add fuel to the fire.

Feingold and Oshkosh manufacturer Ron Johnson have been trading barbs accusing the other of being weak on keeping oil rigs out of the Great Lakes.

Poll results due out Thursday morning could increase their sense of urgency.

The University of Wisconsin Badger Poll was conducted between June 9 and July 10. That was before the two campaigns released their TV ads this week but it should still give the candidates an early idea of where they stand.

Also in the race are two Republicans -- Watertown businessman Dave Westlake and Milwaukee plumber Stephen Finn -- and Independent software engineer Rob Taylor of Cumberland.
