GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- In a political season where campaigns disagree on almost everything, here's one area where Wisconsin politicians have found common ground: suspend campaigning whenever a Packers game is on.
In Wisconsin's hotly contested U.S. Senate race, campaign volunteers took a 3-hour timeout Sunday while Green Bay played the Arizona Cardinals. The campaigns say they know better than to upset voters with a phone call or a knock on the door during a key moment in the game.
Republican Senate candidate Tommy Thompson says it would "be dumb" to antagonize a voter by interrupting the game. And his Democratic opponent, Tammy Baldwin, says everyone knows you don't disturb a Packers fan while the game is on.
The presidential campaigns also stopped campaigning for those three hours.
