Craig Gilbert talked about Wisconsin as a “swing” state in the 2012 presidential election, and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. Topics included polling data, the impact of the state’s U.S. Representative Paul Ryan selection as Mitt Romney’s running mate, and the recall election of Governor Scott Walker.

“Swing” states are those in which either both major political parties have a strong chance of winning a state’s electoral college votes. As a result both Republican and Democrats campaign more heavily in those states because they represent the best chances to gain electoral votes.

This was part three of a “Washington Journal” series on the ten “swing” or “battleground” states in the 2012 election: Florida, Nevada, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, and Ohio. close
