Governor Scott Walker on Thursday, Nov. 1 kicked off his final statewide bus tour ahead of the Nov. 6 election in an effort to sway undecided voters, one day after the Marquette University Law School poll showed Walker tied with Democratic candidate for governor Tony Evers – both receiving 47 percent support.
“From our standpoint, I’m asking for your vote,” said Walker.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, Leah Vukmir, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch joined Walker at Mathison Manufacturing in Waukesha.
“My focus here is on the state of Wisconsin and making sure we’re able to provide more opportunity and more freedom for people here in the state,” said Walker.
Speaker Ryan offered his full support – and also backed Vukmir, who is running against incumbent Senator Tammy Baldwin.
“We have a governor who doesn’t walk away from problems,” said Ryan.
“The differences are clear. I’m asking for your help. I’m asking for your support,” said Vukmir. …
“Tony’s taxes are a recipe for a return to a recession in the state of Wisconsin,” said Walker.
