The crowd at Mitt Romney’s Election Night party cheered and supporters snapped photos of a TV screen after Fox News projected the former Massachusetts guv would win Wisconsin.

Hundreds of people jammed into a room at the Historic Grain Exchange in Milwaukee. There were no tables or chairs, and supporters were standing shoulder-to-shoulder in the room.

Dale Stearman of Kenosha brought his family to the party, including teen sons Nathan, 17, and Cameron, 15.

“Romney has business experience and as a business consultant. That’s what I look for,” he said. “The problem I have with politicians is they take our money and make plans and regulations, but don’t see it through.”
