    What I like about this story is that money doesn't buy an election. Of course, Meg Whitman already taught us that.

    What plays well with 51% of the GOP who voted may not play that well in the general election, when Democrats and Independents vote.

    Whoops, that seat was just won back by the smallest margin and a lot of Koch money changed hands. In fact, they blew their wad on that goofball. I'll bet they're pissed.

    Here are the presidential and Senate polls for Wisconsin:

    RCP Average 7/5 - 8/6 -- 49.8 44.4 Obama +5.4

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - Wisconsin: Romney vs. Obama

    Poll Date Sample Baldwin (D) Thompson (R) Spread
    RCP Average 7/5 - 8/6 -- 45.8 45.3 Baldwin +0.5

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - Wisconsin Senate - Thompson vs. Baldwin

    You might not want to get too cocky yet about any Republican on any ballot..
