Wisconsin House members split on bailout bill

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Wisconsin House members supported the $700 billion financial bailout package on a 5-3 vote, just as they did with a version that was defeated in the House earlier this week.

  Supporters picked up enough converts Friday to easily win passage of the legislation, but none came from Wisconsin.

  Again, Republicans Jim Sensenbrenner and Tom Petri, and Democrat Steve Kagen, voted against the legislation.

  Voting yes were Democrats David Obey, Ron Kind, Gwen Moore and Tammy Baldwin and Republican Paul Ryan.
