Gubernatorial candidates stumping this holiday weekend


MADISON (WKOW) -- Candidates for Wisconsin governor are campaigning hard with only a couple days left before voters head to the polls.

Republican candidate for governor Scott Walker visited Madison this afternoon, telling voters help is on the way.

"Everybody in this state wants to see more jobs, less government. That's exactly what you're going to get when you elect me as your next governor November 2nd," said Scott Walker, Republican candidate for governor.

Walker also campaigned with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in Wausau. He also planned to also visit Eau Claire, La Crosse and Green Bay this Saturday.

Meanwhile, Democratic candidate Tom Barrett was joined on the campaign trail by Senator Herb Kohl.

The two met with Steelworkers in Green Bay, looking to rally supporters during the final days of the campaign.

"I think the people here understand that this is something I've worked on for my entire career. Whether it's been as mayor or whether its been as congressman, that I've fought for people who need to be able to support their families," said Tom Barrett, Democratic candidate for governor.

Barrett also held rallies in Neenah, Stevens Point, Oshkosh and Milwaukee Saturday.

Polls have consistently shown Scott Walker with a lead, but democrats hope their expansive "Get Out the Vote" effort will put them over the top Tuesday.
