Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call
Former Gov. Tommy Thompson has some clear advantages in Wisconsin's competitive Republican Senate primary.

People have seen it before and theres nothing to offer there, Lansing said. People are tired of career politicians. They dont want to keep the same people put us in this mess.

Fitzgerald said that election fatigue and an early primarythis year marks the first time Wisconsin will hold its primary in Augustmay lead to lower turnout. He said he believes he would benefit if the electorate is dominated by the partys most active members.

Thompson said he believes that getting people to the polls would be his biggest challenge.

With good weather in late summer, people may prefer to go the ball games or relax by the lake, he said.
