Candidates make final push day before historic election

Posted:
STEVENS POINT (WAOW) -

It's the final push for both candidates ahead of Tuesday's historic recall election.

Governor Scott Walker and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett both toured the state on Monday, urging voters to head to the polls on their behalf.

"This is going to be tight," said Walker. "When you have tens of millions of dollars spent in a year and a half attacking me. When you have thousands of people coming in. There is just no doubt in my mind this is going to be tough tight election."

"I have no desire to be the rock star for the right," said Barrett. "I have no desire to be the rock star for the left. I want to be rock solid in working to create jobs in Wisconsin."

Both candidates spent the day campaigning at a frantic pace.

After a stop in La Crosse, Tom Barrett met with supporters in River Falls, and Rhinelander. He also talked with voters in Portage, before making his way to Kenosha.

The Mayor ended the night in his home city of Milwaukee

Governor Walker started the day in Fitchburg, then continued on to West Salem, and Eau Claire before his stop in Stevens Point. After that, Governor Walker  met supporters in Green Bay. Like Barrett, Walker also ended the busy day in Milwaukee.

The Governor says he is relieved election day is finally here.

"I think a lot of people will be looking forward to getting their TVs back on Wednesday without all the attack ads, and they will be ready to just move on and move forward. And that's what we offer."

Both candidates plan to campaign until the polls close on Tuesday.
