From Eau Claire to Waukesha, Gov. Walker makes last, concerted effort for your vote

WAUKESHA (WITI) -- Governor Scott Walker put the wraps on his third campaign for the office of governor in four years -- hosting a final rally in Waukesha late on Monday, November 3rd.

Governor Walker spent the final day of the campaign traveling the state of Wisconsin.

Governor Walker made an early stop in Sun Prairie, and then headed to Onalaska, Eau Claire and Mosinee. He rallied supporters in Green Bay during the dinner hour -- and finished up in the symbolic home of the Wisconsin Republican Party -- Waukesha.

Congressman Paul Ryan and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch joined Governor Walker on the campaign trail.

"I don`t know about you but I sure as heck don`t want to get back to the days of double-digit tax increases and massive job losses. I want to continue to move forward. I`m gonna vote (Tuesday)," Kleefisch said.

At a stop in Green Bay, Governor Walker said special interests have been working hard to unseat him.

"We are much better off today. Four years ago, we have taxes going up, tuition going up, 3.6 billion dollar budget deficit, and today we've balanced that budget," Governor Walker said.

Walker has been making the case to voters that he deserves another four years on the job because his reforms have fixed the state budget and led to tax cuts.

"(Tuesday's) a symbol. We're sending a message around the state and across the country that you can care more about the next generation than the next election and you can get elected again doing that," said Gov. Walker.

Gov. Walker said on Monday this election was the Democratic Party's "Waterloo" -- a reference to the famous 1915 battle in which Napoleon was decisively defeated. He believes his opponents will throw everything they have at him one last time as "payback" for his war with organized labor.

Supporters gathered in Waukesha Monday night said they're predicting a strong turnout for Walker at the polls Tuesday.

"This is fun. This is exciting. We`re very excited about the outcome, and we hope the best for the Governor and his family," Kevin Larson said.

Governor Walker was set to address the crowd in Waukesha around 10:00 p.m. Monday.
