In the home stretch: Gubernatorial candidates make several stops in Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- It is the home stretch before election day. On Saturday, Governor Scott Walker and democratic candidate Mary Burke made stops around the state.

Walker started his bus tour in Minocqua this morning. He then made stops in Hayward, Eau Claire, and Lacrosse throughout the day.

Meanwhile, Burke was in Wausau, Rhinelander, New Richmond, Lacrosse and Appleton.

On Friday, October 31st, Walker got a little extra help from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in Wausau.

"After four years I've known your governor and I have worked with him as a colleague, and I've gotten to know he and his family, his friends. So I can tell you that you're very lucky in Wisconsin," said Christie.

"Whether Chris Christie or anyone less wants to come in that gets people excited about going to the polls, I think it's a great thing," said Burke.

The latest Marquette University Law School poll shows Walker with a 7 point lead over Burke, among likely voters.
