Tom Barrett talks recall campaign on Capitol City Sunday


Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett isn't holding back in his third campaign for governor. Barrett joins Capitol Bureau Chief Greg Neumann and WKOW reporter Tony Galli on "Capitol City Sunday" this weekend. 

The apparent Democratic front-runner says if Wisconsin voters take Governor Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin) at his word, they should vote him out of office.

Barrett speaks about the Democratic primary race, attack ads coming at him from both parties, and the keys to potentially unseating Governor Walker. 

Barrett says he is largely ignoring attacks by fellow Democrat Kathleen Falk and is squarely focused on the governor. 

The Milwaukee mayor believes Wisconsin's poor job performance is what voters need to consider most when they determine who to vote for in June.

"He said he was going to create 250,000 jobs. Instead, he decided to launch this ideological civil war," said Barrett.  "And by focusing on that instead of focusing on jobs, the people of this state, the economy of this state, the revenues of this state have all suffered."

Greg and Tony also analyze the recall race with the help of two State Capitol reporters.
Mary Spicuzza from the Wisconsin State Journal and Patrick Marley from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel join "Capitol City Sunday."

Hear what they have to say about a number of topics including the battle for the Democratic nomination, and whether or not any Democrat can compete with Governor Walker's campaign fundraising.
