Democrats are quietly worrying that huge leads in the polls for Barack Obama could effect down-ballot races in the state.
Dems are trying to take control of the state Assembly this fall, but they'll need a surge of support to make up their seven-seat deficit.
Obama looked like a winning ticket, but now that he appears to be in control in Wisconsin, his supporters are focusing on swing states like Indiana and Ohio. The state party is trying to maintain momentum, but that could be tough if Obama continues to roll.
Their hope? The polls tighten between now and Nov. 4. Their reasoning? A McCain resurgence will force Dems to the polls.
If Dems do grab the Assembly and hold the Senate, look for KRM to pass. But don't necessarily expect health-care reform. If Obama is serious about his plan, the state may hang back and let the Feds take the lead on some form of universal health care.
If McCain wins, a Dem-controlled government would probably pass some form of expanded health care for all.
