On the eve of the August primary in Wisconsin, the November presidential election is getting lots of attention in the state...because of who's been added to the Republican ticket.
GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke to thousands of supporters in Waukesha Sunday night...bringing running mate Paul Ryan with him. Congressman Ryan praised other Republican office-holders from the state, as people who keep their promises.
Ryan says Republicans led by Governor Scott Walker fixed the problems in Madison, and he expects the party will fix Washington.
Police procedures in the investigation of a La Crosse drug death are under fire.
The judge in the Cain Moss murder case is being asked not to allow evidence from some statements Moss made last year, when he was charged with the overdose death of Tony Du Charme. Police found Du Charme's body near Red Cloud Park, after speaking with suspects and witnesses. Police Lieutenant Matt Malott and Moss's defense attorney argued back and forth in court today about whether Moss seemed to be on drugs when he was questioned, and whether officers ignored his requests for a lawyer. No trial date has been set for Cain Moss. Judge Todd Bjerke says he will rule by the end of August on whether Moss's statements are admissible.

As Wisconinites prepare for another election next week, outside eyes are watching like they did in the governor's recall election. This time it's South Carolina Senator, Jim DeMint. Now, he has his eyes on the hotly contested senate race....like he did when Ron Johnson ran 2 years ago.
And as he did for the Republican Johnson, who beat out Russ Feingold in 2010, DeMint has given his support to Republican, Mark Neuman.
