SUSSEX (WKOW) -- Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley campaigned in Wisconsin to encourage voters to cast their ballots for Governor Scott Walker Friday.
Haley said she and other governors are watching the Wisconsin recall race closely, to see whether voters will reward the courage that Walker has shown.
"He and a group of us said, we've got to keep our promise to the people," Haley said. She continued talking about the Governor, "He said, this is going to hurt but if we do this for the people of Wisconsin we'll be better off for it."
Haley, Walker, and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch also stressed the importance of getting out the vote.
Walker said, "People want to continue to go forward but they're scared if the wrong choice is made Tuesday we may retract and go backwards."
The three spoke to a receptive crowd of hundreds of QuadGraphics employees in Sussex.
Haley said Walker has shown the courage to make tough decisions. She says Americans like fighters who understand that even when the heat is on, they need to keep fighting.
She told several hundred workers at a Sussex printing plant that if Wisconsin voters have Walker's back, it would show governors like her that if they fight for voters, the voters will have their backs too.
