Thompson wins GOP Senate primary
Former Wisconsin Governor Tommy G. Thompson won Tuesday's primary to become the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Herb Kohl for 24 years.
With 100% of precincts reporting, Thompson had 34% of the vote. His main challenger in the four-way GOP primary, businessman Eric Hovde, Madison, had 31% of the votes.
