Madison, Wis. (AP) One Wisconsin voter says she is more excited to vote in this election than in any other in her life.
One reason, perhaps, is that few experts thought the state's primary would even be relevant.
Last year, a number of states leapfrogged one another to schedule their primaries as early as possible. That left Wisconsin's primary two weeks after Super Tuesday.
However, four major candidates have been swarming across Wisconsin to deliver last-minute messages in a state that suddenly matters.
The forecast for Election Day is for bitterly cold temperatures in the single digits and wind chills below zero. Turnout is predicted to be 35 percent, which would be the highest in 20 years.
