Walker hits campaign trail before Election Day
WAUSAU, Wis. — With one week until Election Day, Gov. Scott Walker spent his Monday hot on the campaign trail across Wisconsin.
Walker made a morning stop at Major Industries, Inc. in Wausau Monday morning, touring the facility with Congressman Sean Duffy. Walker also spoke with residents there, calling attention to the presidential visits the state has seen this week and last.
“I think it’s clear by the visit from the president today and the former president last week… it’s pretty clear they don’t like the fact we took their power away and put it in the hands of the hard-working taxpayers,” Walker said.
He added those visits by national Democratic leaders highlight the biggest difference between his campaign and candidate Mary Burke’s.
“I think the real story, if you look at where my opponent’s campaign is at and where we’re at, is that it’s really the difference between the Washington-based special interests and Wisconsin taxpayers,” Walker said.
The governor also stopped in Hortonville Monday afternoon for the announcement of 100 jobs and a $5.5 million expansion at Piping Systems, Inc.
Later this week, Walker will be joined on the campaign trail by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Monday, however, Walker said support right here at home is most important right now.
“I’m really focusing on talking with voters here in the state of Wisconsin,” Walker said.
Walker will continue his campaigning Tuesday with the help of U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan. Both will make several stops across Wisconsin, starting in Prairie du Sac.
