MADISON (WKOW) - While a majority of the protestors have gone home, there are hundreds who are still there late Thursday night.

Many huddled near the filming of MSNBC's "The Ed Show," hosted by Ed Schultz.

Others stayed inside where the chanting continues.

Some even plan to stay all night like Karen Bernneman, who is sleeping at the capitol with her 8-year-old daughter.

"It's a big part of history and if the middle class really does gets sabotaged by this bill - she'll know that her mother did everything she could to preserve the middle class in Wisconsin," said Bernneman.

Police continue to keep a high profile near the protesting with patrols and guards.
