Posted Tuesday, November 6, 2012 --- 6:45 a.m.

Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan is set to cast his ballot this morning in Janesville. The congressman flew home to Wisconsin last night. Republicans haven't won the presidential ticket in Wisconsin in 28 years, but polls show a tight race.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The GOP's gearing up for the chance to win back their majority in the Wisconsin Senate. Republicans won the Senate, Assembly and governor's office in 2010. But Democrats took control of the Senate during the June recall elections.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Democrats are looking to Representative Tammy Baldwin to hold off a political comeback by former Governor Tommy Thompson in the race for the state's open U.S. Senate seat. Even though the seat's been held by a Democrat since 1957, Republicans see it as a key opportunity to try to win a Senate majority.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin voters will have to contend with a wintry mix of rain and snow today as they head to the polls. About an inch of snow is forecast for northern Wisconsin, while meteorologists are predicting cold rain in the south. Weather's a factor in voter turnout and this year could the coldest and rainiest presidential election day in more than three decades.
