Many Wisconsin Republicans not backing candidate yet

by

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Many Wisconsin Republicans are not ready to get behind a presidential candidate yet.

The GOP field was narrowed down to 6 Wednesday, when Minnesota House Republican Michelle Bachmann dropped out.

Texas Governor Rick Perry said he was re-evaluating his campaign, after he placed 5th in Tuesday's Iowa caucuses. Bachmann was 6th.

Mitt Romney was the winner by just 8 votes over Rick Santorum, with Ron Paul a close 3rd.

Brown County GOP chairman Vern Krawczyk says his party is not leaning toward a nominee at this point -- and neither is Governor Scott Walker or the State Republican Party.

The GOP's Ben Sparks says any of his party's candidates would be, "a vast improvement over President Obama."

Four years ago, John McCain was all but certain to be the Republican nominee by the time the primaries reached Wisconsin in mid-February. This year, the GOP has stretched out the process, and the Badger State accommodated by moving its primaries back to April 3rd.

A recent poll showed that Romney leads in Wisconsin. And state Senate Republican Rob Cowles of Green Bay said he thinks the former Massachusetts governor will run away with the nomination.

Cowles says he's not supporting anybody yet, but he says an early choice benefits the party. Still, Cowles says it would be nice if Wisconsin could play a role.
