Walker, Kleefisch, Schimel campaign in Schofield before Election Day
SCHOFIELD - Governor Scott Walker traveled all over the state Monday hoping to encourage people to vote for him in Tuesday's election.

Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and Attorney General Brad Schimel campaigned at J&D Tube Benders during their stop in Schofield Monday afternoon.

All three will all appear on the ballot Tuesday.

One of the most watched races across Wisconsin will be the race for governor.

Right now Governor walker and his opponent Tony Evers are tied at 47% of the vote in the latest Marquette University Law School poll.

But walker says the same poll says people are happy with the direction is heading.

"Overwhelmingly, people believe the state's going forward. We get that message out. It didn't happen by accident. We turned this state around. We helped the people, people like J&D, the employees here, turn this state around. More people are working than ever before," said Gov. Walker. 

Walker says he will be back in North Central Wisconsin Tuesday campaigning on Election Day before he heads to Pewaukee for his watch party in the evening.

Evers will be in Madison Tuesday evening for his watch party.
