Governor Jim Doyle pulls out all the stops for Barack Obama. At the Kohl Center Tuesday night, Wisconsin's governor was as impassioned as he's ever been, as he took to the stage to introduce Senator Barack Obama. “I've been waiting a long time for a leader who's not just going to go out fight the same old fights with the same old people, but a leader who's ready to turn the page, and move us into the future,” the governor told the crowd.
Obama's entry into the Kohl Center rally was preceded by the news that he'd swept the Potomac Primaries in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Now, Doyle says, all eyes will be on Wisconsin, and Tuesday's presidential primary here: “so I'm asking you, I'm pleading with you but I don't think with this audience that I need to plead with you. I need you to do everything you can between now and next Tuesday. Make sure everybody gets to the polls.”
A win in Wisconsin would give Obama nine straight primary victories over his opponent for the Democratic presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton.
