Thompson Only GOP Candidate That Leads Tammy Baldwin

      [Milwaukee, WI...] Tommy Thompson for U.S Senate campaign consultant Darrin Schmitz today issued the following statement regarding the release of a new primary poll by Marquette University Law School that demonstrates Thompson enjoys an 18-point lead in the GOP primary for the U.S. Senate.

      "Tommy Thompson's plan to balance the budget, cut spending and repeal Obamacare is clearly resonating with Republican voters.  He is the only candidate who has put forward a comprehensive, conservative plan to cap both spending and revenues in order to bring fiscal sanity to Washington," said Schmitz.

      The Marquette University Law School Poll, which accurately predicted Governor Scott Walker's margin of victory in the recent recall election, shows the following results in a head-to-head matchup in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate:
  • Thompson, 34%;
  • Neumann, 16%;
  • Hovde, 14%; and
  • Fitzgerald, 10%.
      Schmitz added Thompson's opponents are likely to respond to his lead in the polls by distorting the former's governor's record of 91 tax cuts, 1900 vetoes cutting $287 million in spending, welfare reform, School Choice and a historic 740,000 jobs created during his tenure.

      "Republican voters will soon see a flurry of negative and false attacks in an attempt to trash Tommy Thompson's record.  Desperate candidates will now resort to the same sort of lies that plagued the governor's race in 2010, but we are fully prepared to fight back and defend the governor's conservative record and his aggressive plan to restore America, " said Schmitz.

      Thompson's RESTORE America plan reduces the size and scope of the federal government by enacting a series of bold reforms that strengthens the private sector. Thompson's plan, which can found at, includes the following:
  • Revenue and spending caps;
  • Strict budget reforms to force the Senate to act on a budget;
  • A market-based replacement to Obamacare;
  • Entitlement reforms;
  • Massive tax overhaul including tax cuts for families and small businesses;
  • Job creating incentives;
  • A full plan for energy independence; and
  • Putting federal employee pay and benefits in line with the private sector.
