The Wisconsin state capitol building, located in Madison, WI.

Madison, is the very liberal capital city of Wisconsin. Founded in 1836, Madison is centered on a narrow isthmus between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona. Madison is home to the University of Wisconsin System's flagship university, the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The people of Madison are known for being very liberal, and ultra-liberal Democratic Senator Russ Feingold hails from Middleton, an adjacent suburb. Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, whose congressional district encompasses Madison, is one of few openly lesbian members of Congress.

Other examples of liberal college towns include Santa Cruz, California; Austin, Texas and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
