Race for governor heats up on the campaign trail

Posted:
SCHOFIELD (WAOW) -

It's not the first time these two politicians have hit the campaign trail. Nor is it the first time they've gone head to head in the run for governor. Each says he's the best man for the job. And they're traveling the state, making sure their messages are heard.

"If people want to see massive job loss in this state, they should elect Tom Barrett," Governor Scott Walker told a group of supporters today.

But, Tom Barrett fired back at his own campaign stop.

"The state will never get back on track with Scott Walker's my way or the highway attitude," Barrett said.

The democratic nominee stopped in Schofield Thursday for his Neighbor to Neighbor campaign. Barrett says he's focused on bringing the people of Wisconsin together. 

"Neighbors can't talk to neighbors, relatives can't talk to relative, co workers don't want to talk to co workers about politics because it gets to bitter. We have to end that. People need to come together," Barrett said.

In Wisconsin Dells, Governor Walker was also on the campaign trail. He spoke to a room full of supporters about jobs and manufacturing.

"If they want to see job growth continue as they've done for the first 3 months of this year, they should continue to keep me in office," Walker said.

But time is running out. Both candidates have less than three weeks left before the general election June 5th.
