Walker says ‘special interests’ want him defeated
MIDDLETON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker says that President Barack Obama’s campaign visit for his Democratic challenger Mary Burke is a sign that “Washington-based special interests” want to defeat him because he took power away from them.
Both Walker and Burke were campaigning around the state on Monday, with the Nov. 4 election eight days away.
Walker began his day at Vortex Optics in Middleton, while Burke was campaigning near La Crosse. Both candidates faced a midnight deadline to file campaign reports showing how much they raised and spent over the past three months.
Burke was also to vote as a member of the Madison school board Monday night on whether to approve a budget with a property tax increase.
Obama is coming to Milwaukee on Tuesday to campaign with Burke.
