Green Bay, WI - The stakes are high in tomorrow's Republican Presidential primary. That's why candidates have been criss-crossing the state over the past few weeks, trying to do all they can to win over Wisconsin voters.
After dozens of appearances, rallies and interviews... it all comes down to April 3rd, when voters will go to the polls and decide who will win Wisconsin's GOP primary.
Rick Santorum made five stops in the Badger State Monday. After touring an Appleton cheese shop, he took the opportunity to criticize Mitt Romney's campaign.
"He just depresses turn out. He just turns people off by the negativity of the race, drives down our turnout, probably drives down his turnout but has enough because of what he's done to be able to win," Santorum said.
Meanwhile, Romney made a stop at Wisconsin Building Supply in the Green Bay area, where he focused his criticism solely on President Obama.
"He is responsible for the fact that we have more people today on food stamps than ever before in history, 45 million. He's responsible for the fact that 30 percent of single moms are living in poverty with their families. 30 percent," said Romney.
Presidential hopeful Ron Paul made only one stop in the Badger State. Last Wednesday, he held a town hall meeting at UW Madison.
After campaigning in Green Bay and Oshkosh on Friday, Newt Gingrich was in Maryland Monday, vowing to campaign all the way to the Republican Convention.
"Governor Romney doesn't have it locked down. And we have no obligation to back off and concede anything," said Gingrich.
42 delegates are up for grabs in Wisconsin's primary. Polls show Romney leading Santorum in Wisconsin by an average of 40 to 32.5. Paul and Gingrich trail far behind.
