Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton came out on top in Wisconsin's 1992 Democratic primary election, narrowly defeating former California Gov Jerry Brown 37%-35%. Clinton went on to win the Democratic nomination and to win Wisconsin in the general election. He defeated incumbent President George H. W. Bush in November, thanks in part to the third-party candidacy of Texas billionaire businessman Ross Perot.
