Gov. Walker, Barrett campaign in central Wisconsin

We're only two days away from Tuesday's historic recall election.    

Both Governor Scott Walker, and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, visited central Wisconsin on Sunday.

Governor Walker talked with voters at a dairy breakfast.

"It's a farming tradition," said Walker. "I grew up in a small town, so it's kinda a nice way to see folks from around the county and around the region."

Walker's challenger, Tom Barrett, rallied supporters in Stevens Point.

"Everywhere we're going we are getting a great, great response," said Barrett. "It feels wonderful."

Recent polls show Walker ahead by a narrow margin. But both candidates say they know every vote is important.
"That's why we are putting such an effort into doing this," said Barrett. "I realize I'm being outspent maybe 8-1, 10-1 but I'll take the people of central Wisconsin over the billionaires from Texas any day because at the end of the day it's going to be who comes out to vote."  

"Hopefully we can turn out people that didn't vote for me in 2010, but who like the fact we've take on the tough problems," said Walker.

Neither candidate is giving an inch, both confident voters will ultimately side with them.

"we feel good," said Walker. "The polls obviously are good, but the only poll that matters is the one on election day."

"We are very, very confident that we are going to have a very strong showing and win the election on Tuesday," said Barrett.

Both candidates plan to return to central Wisconsin on Monday.
