RACINE (WKOW) -- The Gubernatorial candidates are getting a lot of attention and support from national political figures.
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz campaigned with Democratic candidate Tom Barrett in Racine Wednesday.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus talked with our Milwaukee affiliate about the upcoming race.
Both say what happens in Wisconsin on Tuesday could have a direct affect on the race for president.
Wasserman Schultz says, "This is not what the voters in Wisconsin or America signed up for so I think it's gonna be the beginning of the downfall of the tea party politics that Americans have already been rejecting."
Priebus commented, "It's also beyond Scott Walker. This election signifies, really, the future of this country. It signifies whether or not we're going to be a country that lives within its means, whether we're going to live under the basic understanding that government cannot spend more money than it takes in."
Money is also pouring into this race from out of state.
Over the last five weeks, Walker's campaign reports show he collected nearly $6 million, about $3.7 million from out-of-state donors.
Barrett's campaign says it raised about $3.5 million in the same time period.
