Wisconsin Senate Race Moved to "Toss-Up" by Cook Report

Charlie Cook writes at the Cook Political Report (subscription required):
Russ Feingold has attempted to smear Johnson as an anti-Civil Rights Act, pro-Great Lakes Drilling "third part of that Rand Paul, Sharron Angle tripartition," but Cook says that line of attack doesn't ring true:
As I note in my write-up of Wisconsin Senate race, Johnson has the least political experience of any GOP candidate in a competitive Senate race this year. Of the 16 races highlighted in this Wall Street Journal article, only three GOP candidates have never held office before: Johnson, Fiorina in California, and Paul in Kentucky. The latter two candidates were involved in the 2008 presidential campaign (Fiorina for McCain, and Paul for his father). As Cook writes, Johnson may be the "ultimate outsider."
