One week until Primary elections


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin voters will take to the polls for the state Legislature primaries, next Tuesday.

Republicans have stewed on the sidelines the past two years as Democrats controlled state government. Now they hope to capitalize on the recession and anti-government sentiment.

The GOP needs to gain only two seats to control the Senate and four to take the Assembly.

GOP executive director Mark Jefferson says it's an "anti-big government year." But state Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate say voters will make their choices based on people, not the party.
