SCHULTZ: -- who has not had competition for years on end. He has not
had competitive --

STATE REP. FRED CLARK, (D), WISCONSIN: That`s right.

SCHULTZ: -- for years on end. What has it been? 16 or 17 years that
he`s not had competition?

CLARK: In his entire career. But, Ed, you go back 115 years and find
a Democrat that`s represented 14th Senate district.

SCHULTZ: You can`t.

CLARK: You can`t.

SCHULTZ: How do you feel going into tomorrow? What`s on the ground?

CLARK: I did my own poll Sunday morning at a corn roast in
Scandinavia, Wisconsin, up in northern Waupaca County.

(CHEERING)

CLARK: In two hours, greeting folks in line to eat sweet corn, I
shook hands constantly and I said hi to folks. Everybody in every
community in the 14th district knows this race. They are planning to vote.
People are engaged like they haven`t seen in years and years.

SCHULTZ: Do you think what happened today on Wall Street and what`s
happened in the market in the last few weeks is going to be a motivating
factor for turn out? Do people view this as Wall Street versus Main
Street? Do they see the severity of the outcome and what it means to the
rest of the country?

CLARK: I think the lessons people can take from Wall Street, in
Washington, our elected leaders cannot work together and took this to the
brink before finally crafting a deal that no one was happy with at the end
of the day. They expect us to do better than that in Madison. And the
extreme partisanship we have seen this year is something voter after vote,
whether they`re Republican or Democrat, says to me, we expect you to go to
Madison and solve the problems and work together.
