MILWAUKEE -- With less than 100 days to the general election, we're taking a closer look at who's at the top of the races in Wisconsin by following the money.
The latest NBC News battleground map shows Wisconsin is now leaning toward Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Expect to see Trump campaign in Green Bay Friday. A UW - Milwaukee political science professor believes this shows Trump is still counting on Wisconsin.

"If we were to lose, lets say Pennsylvania, are there any states at play where we could put together the right number?" said Mordecai Lee, UW-Milwaukee Political Science Professor.

The race for Wisconsin's U.S. Senate seat is where it gets interesting.
The latest Marquette Law School Poll shows among registered voters, incumbent Republican Ron Johnson trails democrat Russ Feingold by seven percent.

According to FCC data, pro-Senator Johnson Super Pac "Freedom Partners" had ordered $1,000,000 in political AD's in June statewide. All of that money was pulled out of Wisconsin last month.
Feingold meanwhile, is all in. ADs have even been ordered during the Olympic Games.
