Wisconsin Democrats are fighting to take control of the state Capitol. Democrats need three seats to take control of the state Assembly. If they do that and retain control of the Senate, they'll run both chambers of the legislature for the first time in two decades. With a Democratic governor in office Republicans fear Democrat backed issues that have previously failed, such as universal health care and a public smoking ban, will be pushed through. Democrats hope to capitalize on the anti-Republican sentiment that gave them control of the state Senate in 2006. The hottest Senate contest this time around is in the Milwaukee area, where long-time Assembly Democrat Sheldon Wasserman is trying to unseat River Hills Republican Alberta Darling.
