Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke says if she defeats Republican Gov. Scott Walker it will mean that voters have rejected what she called his “extreme agenda.”

Burke spoke with reporters Friday on her campaign bus before a day of events across the state. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie plans to meet up with Walker for two stops Friday afternoon.

Burke says Walker has implemented a tea party agenda and if she wins “it will be a repudiation of that extreme agenda.”

Burke says to win turnout needs to be high, but it doesn’t have to reach the levels seen in 2012 when President Barack Obama carried Wisconsin by 7 points. The state elections board is predicting lower turnout, closer to what was seen in Walker’s recall election in 2012.
