Walker stops in the Northwoods to campaign
EAGLE RIVER - Gov. Scott Walker decided to stop in the Northwoods on Sunday as part of his campaign.

He arrived in Eagle River to meet people and encourage them to get out and vote. 


Walker took the time to address his viewpoints. He says that the biggest issue is his competition, Democrat Tony Evers and his attack ads. 

The Governor hopes these visits will encourage word-of-mouth support after people meet him. 

"The best way we can counter it is with the people we're here with today," said Walker. "Getting the message out, going door to door, person to person, making the contact, getting all the information out, cutting through all the attack ads."

Walker also made stops in Tomahawk and Marshfield. 

Many candidates are traveling throughout the state before people vote November 6.

Registering to vote by mail or online ends October 17.
