Wisconsin holds its GOP presidential primary tomorrow. Most polls show Mitt Romney with a lead over Rick Santorum and talking heads are dubbing Wisconsin as Santorum's "last chance."

But along with tomorrow's primary, Wisconsin voters have four more major elections between now and November. The vote to recall Republican Governor Scott Walker is capturing a lot of attention and possibly even overshadowing the presidential primary.

Craig Gilbert joins the show to discuss the recall election and if it might influence Wisconsin voters when they go to the polls for the November presidential election.

Guest: Craig Gilbert is theWashington Bureau chief for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
