Walker, Barrett tour state in final campaign push


MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker and Mayor Tom Barrett made several campaign stops Sunday.

After attending campaign events in De Pere, Wausau, and Germantown, Governor Walker visited one of his campaign centers in Fitchburg.

"Feelin' good, but we think it's going to be a tight election," Walker said to the media after speaking to a group of supporters at the phone bank.

Walker said his volunteers statewide have made more than 2.5 million phone calls reaching out to voters.

Mayor Tom Barrett was also busy on the campaign trail. He and Walker attended the same breakfast in De Pere Sunday morning.

"We're talking about the future of the state why it is so important to have a governor who is going to focus on creating jobs here," Barrett said. He also said Walker's reforms are not working for the middle class.

Gov. Walker continued to defend his actions while in office. "We've laid out a clear plan, we've kept our promises, we moved the state forward, billion dollars worth of savings, property tax relief, property taxes going down for the first time in 12 years on a median valued home," the Governor said.

Both candidates spoke about what's to come if elected. Gov. Walker said he thinks voters will expect the recall laws to change. Mayor Barrett said he will focus on restoring Wisconsin values.
