Mitt Romney's choice of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate has boosted the Republican presidential ticket's hopes of winning the Badger State, and it could also help the party claim the state's other Senate seat.
With polls showing the movement's popularity sagging, tea party members from across the country are warning that anyone who thinks they are sleeping in 2012 is in for a rude awakening come Election Day, when they plan to pick up where they left off in 2010 by bolstering their voices for limited government on Capitol Hill.
On one side, there's a baby-faced, decorated Marine intelligence officer and attorney who serves as Ohio's state treasurer. On the other, a noted liberal who won his first election the same year he graduated from college and who served 14 years in Congress before being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006.
Just as many voters were getting over a record-setting string of state Senate recall elections with the prospect of another against the governor, the parties are gearing up for what many are predicting will be a hard-fought race for the open U.S. Senate seat left by retiring Sen. Herb Kohl, a Democrat.
The nation's bumper crop of 10 Republican governors-elect, still basking in the afterglow of their victories, are already facing a reality check. And the reality facing incoming Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a one-time computer executive in his first elective office, may be as tricky as any in the country.

In 2008, then-candidate Barack Obama's political coattails extended across the country. But heading into this year's elections, Democrats face a tricky task of where to deploy their party chief on the campaign trail as they try to hang onto majorities in both houses of Congress.
The races for seats held by Democratic Sens. Mark Begich of Alaska, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Kay Hagan of North Carolina have now shifted from "Lean Democratic" to "Toss Up," writes Jennifer Duffy.
"Democratic strategists are reconciled to the reality that the political environment will remain very bad for them, that the President's job approval and favorability ratings will not materially improve between now and the election, nor will public attitudes toward the unpopular Affordable Care Act," Ms. Duffy wrote.
