RACINE -- Voters in Racine were set to decide a close Senate race, in Wisconsin's District 21 on election day Tuesday, June 5th. Right now, the state Senate is even, with 16 Democrats and 16 Republicans. There's one open seat, after Pam Galloway of Wausau stepped down, and three Republican Senators targeted in the recall. If any Democrat wins, the balance of power in the Senate shifts.
Lehman spent the day Tuesday campaigning with Democratic candidate for governor, Tom Barrett. Both are in a rematch of their respective 2010 races.
Racine's City Clerk said Tuesday they expected voter turnout in the 21st Senate District to be as high as 70%.
Lehman said he would be hard on the campaign trail all the way up until the polls closed Tuesday at 8:00 p.m.
"I've been on the phone all morning and will be back on the phone. We're just trying to make as much voter contact we can until 8 o'clock," Lehman said.
