State voters delivered a victory to President Barack Obama and Tammy Baldwin. Republican incumbents won in three other contested races, but how did each Hudson precinct vote?
By now it's no secret that President Barack Obama carried Wisconsin on his way to defeating former Gov. Mitt Romney to earn a second presidential term. Obama scored a 53 percent to 46 percent victory for Wisconsin's 10 electoral votes with 98 percent of the precincts reporting. Joining Obama back in Washington will be U.S. Rep.

Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin claimed victory in Wisconsin’s hotly contested U.S. Senate race, defeating former Gov. Tommy Thompson by a small margin and helping her Democratic Party hold on to its narrow national majority. Baldwin, at her Election Night gathering in Madison, by then a victory part, said, "Thank you, thank you, thank you," to her supporters there and around the state just before 11:30 p.m. “It's that battle for Wisconsin's middle class that this has all been about since this journey began 14 months ago,” Baldwin said. "Everywhere that I've gone in our beautiful state, people have told me that they want a senator who will listen to the middle class when they need help... A senator who will wake up every morning and fight for…

Democratic congressional candidate Pat Kreitlow says that recent visits from high-profile Republicans such as Paul Ryan, Rudy Giuliani, Scott Walker and Ron Johnson is a sign that the GOP is worried about carrying St. Croix County.
The morning after several high-profile Republicans, including Rudy Giuliani and Scott Walker, held a rally in downtown Hudson, Democratic U.S. congressional candidate Pat Kreitlow was in a good mood while greeting volunteers in his Hudson campaign office. Saturday's rally came just days after vice presidential candidate U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan visited Hudson as local GOP volunteers coordinated a Sandy relief effort. While the Republicans, including Kreitlow's opponent U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy, were busy rallying around their big-named leaders, Democrats were busy calling, canvassing and executing their get-out-the-vote efforts, Kreitlow said. "The GOP rally fired up everyone around here, because it means St. Croix County is in play," Kreitlow said…

Chairs of the St. Croix County Democratic Party and the St. Croix County Republican Party make a case for their candidates for the U.S. presidency — Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
Editor's Note: Hudson Patch asked the chairs of both major parties in St. Croix County to provide a closing argument for each of their candidates involved in contested races on Nov. 6. Writing for the St. Croix County Democratic Party is chairwoman Susan Stori. Writing for the St. Croix County Republican Party is chairman Jesse Garza. Each writer was asked to make the case for their candidate in 300 or fewer words. The incumbent party gets the first word and the challenging party gets the last word. --- Each election year we ask “are we better off than we were four years ago?” Four years ago we faced economic collapse: homes in foreclosure, rising health care and college costs.
