Wisconsin recall battle finally goes to voters

MADISON, Wis. - The battle over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's agenda has attracted millions of dollars from out of state, campaign volunteers from across the country and months of concentrated attention from the two major political parties.

But on Tuesday, the only voices that matter will be those of voters deciding whether to keep Walker or fire him and hand his job to the Milwaukee mayor. After an intense year in the national spotlight, both sides are preparing for a razor-thin margin.

Polls show Walker with a small lead over Democrat Tom Barrett.

Walker is only the third governor in U.S. history to face a recall vote. The other two lost, most recently California Gov. Gray Davis in 2003.
