Wisconsin has become ground zero for many Republican-inspired initiatives to curtail government spending, and it could play an important role in next year’s presidential race, WISN-TV in Milwaukee reported Tuesday.

"The president's map does not work out without Wisconsin being blue," Priebus said.

Meanwhile, Wisconsin’s GOP Director Mark Jefferson said, "Wisconsin is currently on the forefront of a national movement to address fiscal irresponsibility, and Wisconsin will no doubt continue to be in the spotlight as we enter the 2012 presidential election cycle."

Obama’s former press secretary and a campaign advisor, Robert Gibbs, agreed that the Wisconsin will be an important battleground state.

"I don't doubt that we'll spend a lot of time in the next several years in Wisconsin," Gibbs said.
