Barrett talks jobs at Fitchburg bicycle plant


FITCHBURG (WKOW) -- Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett stopped at the Saris Cycling Group plant in Fitchburg to talk about jobs Wednesday morning.

The Democratic candidate for governor spent most of his time talking jobs, plans and debates... or at least the lack of debates.

"I think it is important that people have the opportunity to hear us exchange ideas. I think that's the essence of our democracy, that we exchange ideas. And I think some of the questions here indicate that, if all this is is trading commercials, what does that say about our democracy?" said Barrett.

Barrett was referring to Republican Lt. Gov. candidate Rebecca Kleefisch's refusal to debate Barrett's running mate, Tom Nelson.
