MADISON (WKOW) -- Regardless of the polls, Republicans are not giving up on Mitt Romney's chances in Wisconsin.
He's now trailing President Obama by an average of eight points here.
The chairman of the Republican party, Reince Priebus, spoke with 27 News Wednesday, saying September is far too early to determine the final outcome and that they have plenty of cash on hand to make up that deficit.
"No, we're going to throw more money at it. So, I don't feel that way about Wisconsin. I don't actually think Barack Obama or Mitt Romney do either, otherwise we wouldn't be all spending so much money on TV there, so, I'm just looking at a lot of buys going into the Madison market and Milwaukee and all over the state and it's going to be a close race," said Priebus.
Priebus also believes Tommy Thompson is still in a strong position to win the U.S. Senate race, despite trailing Democrat Tammy Baldwin by an average of five points right now.
