MILWAUKEE- Milwaukee is where Mitt Romney hopes to celebrate a win Tuesday night.  Romney told TODAY'S TMJ4's Annie Scholz, Wisconsin will be in play -- not just in the primary, but in the general election later this year.

"I'm in this race to help people get good jobs, to get incomes up again, to make sure that health care costs don't bankrupt families," said Romney. 

One of the most famous faces in Wisconsin politics, Janesville Representative Paul Ryan, is backing him Romney the way.  "I think he's the best guy for the job, I think he'll be the best president and I think he has the best chance of beating Barack Obama," asserted Rep. Ryan.

But whether you'll see the two of them on the ticket, Romney kept his message clear: President Obama's government is too big and his taxes are too high.

"In an ideal world, you cut back on government, you have smaller government, it takes less from the American people," argued Romney.

He told TODAY's TMJ4 the people of Wisconsin will be a big part of what that means -- come November.  "In the general election, Wisconsin is going to be in play.  You're going to see President Obama here; if I'm the nominee I'm going to be here a lot," Romney announced.

Right now, Romney has a comfortable lead over his opponents.  TODAY'S TMJ4 will be with the Romney campaign Tuesday night as the votes come in and have the latest for you on Live at 10.
