MADISON (AP) -- Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin gets a chance to raise her profile and make her case against Republican Tommy Thompson during a prime time speaking slot at her party's national convention.
Baldwin is slated to speak Thursday night in the 7 p.m. hour, shortly before President Barack Obama takes the stage.
It's a high profile slot in a race that could help determine whether Democrats maintain majority control of the Senate.
Polls show Thompson, the former four-term governor, with a lead over Baldwin, who has been in Congress since 1999.
