WALKER, WHO VOTED FOR THE SAME SEX MARRIAGE BAN IN
SAYS HIS OPINION NOW.
AND THAT ACT TEN IS MORE IMPORTANT.
i think voters deserve to know that, yes or no does
someone support it or want to repeal it :35 i can
tell you flat out i'm not going to skirt the answer
on that question, that actually matters because a
governor can have an impact on that in the future
;42 i will maintain act ten and its reforms but they
dont deserve to know yes or no whether or not you
support same sex marriage no, because again thats
one of those where the bottom line, its not about
changing position, the govenror has no bearing on
that in the future
AFTER TOURING LOCAL JAM-MAKER QUINCE AND APPLE...
if i was governor i would want to see gay marriage
go forward :41
DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE MARY BURKE ARGUED THE GOVERNOR'S

particularly when something is discriminatory :38

BECOME AN ISSUE IN THE CAMPAIGN.
FRANKLIN SAYS HIS LATEST POLL OF WISCONSIN SHOWS THAT

NATIONWIDE THE POLLING NUMBERS HAVE ALSO SHOWN A MID-50S
AVERAGE OF SUPPORT...
THOSE MODERATE AND INDEPENDENT VOTERS KEY TO THE SWING.
BUT WITH NO BILL OR ISSUE RELATED TO THIS SPECIFICALLY
ON THE GOVENROR'S AGENDA...
IT WILL BE TO THE CAMPAIGNS TO SEE HOW MUCH THEY EMPHASIZE
