- Both Governor Scott Walker and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett are making their final push around Wisconsin on the eve of the recall election.
Walker's Democratic challenger Tom Barrett made a stop in Rhinelander Monday.
Barrett greeted more than 150 supporters outside the Rhinelander Fire Department and Jetís Dairy Bar.
He hammered Governor Walkerís so-called rock star status.
"There's a lot of things we'd do," Barrett says. "First we'd try to bring the state back together. But to focus on jobs here in the state. I have no interest, at all, in being the rock star of the far right and no interest in being the rock star of the far left. I want to be the governor of the state of Wisconsin and be here. Work with businesses here."
Barrett also talked jobs.
He says the Governor is unable to focus on jobs because of the on-going criminal investigation involving some of his former aides.
Barrett says he has a plan for job creation.
"To the extent we're going to have tax benefits, I want them tied to the actual creation of jobs here in the state of Wisconsin," Barrett says.
"Because as a mayor you have people come to you all the time looking for help, and my questions are always the same. How many jobs are we talking about and are these going to be family supporting jobs? There has to be a connection between those economic incentives and actual jobs created here in the state of Wisconsin."
Barrett left Rhinelander and headed to Portage, followed by stops in Kenosha and then Milwaukee Monday night.
