11:30 Eastern – AP Calls race for former Governor Tommy Thompson — the more conservative/Tea Party vote was split between Hovde and Neumann, with Fitzgerald pulling in just over 10%, allowing Thompson to win with just over one-third of the vote.
This apparently is a real tweet from Emily’s List, calling the moderate Thompson an extremist:

We are all extremists now (but you knew that).

It’s a radical liberal Madison Democrat versus a legendary conservative reformer.

Polls close at 9 p.m. Eastern. I’ll update at meaningful times, but will not follow it minute-by-minute.
Polling has shown a tight race among Tommy Thompson, Eric Hovde and Mark Neumann, with state Senate Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald way back.
The winner faces Rep. Tammy Baldwin.DONATE
