Meanwhile back at the ranch... Paul Soglin wins mayoral race in Madison.
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 04:00 PM by Ellipsis
Cieslewicz was seeking a third term, but Soglin won the tight race after running a spirited, aggressive campaign. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Soglin had 44,542 votes to Cieslewicz's 43,829 votes.

Soglin served as Madison's mayor from 1979 to 1986, and again from 1989 to 1997. Many considered this election a rematch as Ciewlewicz and Soglin faced off for mayor in 2003. Cieslewicz won that contest and nabbed a second term in 2007.

Both men are Democrats, liberals and share similar position on many issues. They both promised to steer a course for the state's capital city despite Republican control of the governor's office and both chambers of the state Legislature.

Both candidates tried to harness energy stemming from opposition to Gov. Scott Walker's efforts to sharply curtail union rights. Soglin touted his experience and said he's ready to take on poverty and other big challenges. Cieslewicz said he led the city through a tough economy and was more current on issues.
