- Following last night’s debate between Governor Scott Walker and Democratic candidate Tom Barrett, Walker travels to the central part of the state to discuss job creations and the economy.
Gov. Scott Walker said, "We're going to continue to stay focused on being positive. Telling people how we built a positive foundation going forward. And I think that's what voters expect out of us."
Dozens of area residents gathered to support the Governor today at the Victory Center in downtown Wausau.
With fewer than two weeks before the June 5-th recall election where Walker squares off with the Milwaukee Mayor, he's taking every opportunity to spread his message to voters.
Gov. Walker said, "Who do you want in charge? Do you want a handful of special interests or do you want the tax payers? We put the tax payers back in charge…Our reforms are working, we saved a billion dollars for the tax payers, lowered property taxes for the first time in 12 years, created a surplus for the state and ultimately 30,000 new jobs were created while I've been governor."
But in last night's debate in Milwaukee, Barret said Walker had used the budget crisis as a way to try and divide and conquer the state.
For some pro-Walker voters, the state's budget is one of their top issues.
Scott Theede, a Walker Supporter, said, "I've always had to keep a positive budget to be self-employed and stay in business and that is one of the main reasons I'm voting for him."
Walker continued to Superior after his stop in Wausau to continue his campaign in the north.
