Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke are targeting supporters as the clock winds down to Tuesday’s election.

Walker started Monday with a rally at Brooks Tractor, a heavy equipment business in Sun Prairie. About 100 supporters chanted “four more years” as Walker took the stage with Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan.

In a 10-minute speech, Walker accused special interest groups of targeting him. He made an oblique reference to his signature law stripping public workers of their union rights, saying he had to make tough decisions to help the state’s finances and the law wasn’t about politics.

Walker planned more stops in Onalaska, Eau Claire, Mosinee, Green Bay and Waukesha. Burke planned appearances in Eau Claire, Superior, Stevens Point, Green Bay and Madison.
