Now that Wisconsin Democrats have wrapped up their National Convention, the focus shifts to winning the state for Presidential nominee Barack Obama.
Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Joe Wineke says the convention is all about kicking off election season. Now, he says they're heading home to work hard until November. The Party has already opened several campaign offices around the state, which are aimed at reaching out to voters.
Wineke says young voters will be a major focus of their efforts in Wisconsin, which he says are crucial to an Obama victory. He says Obama has found many supporters on college campuses, an area where voter turnout has often been a problem.
Wineke also expects Wisconsin to again be a battleground state in the Presidential race. He says Obama and running mate Joe Biden will likely be in Wisconsin several times before November.
