LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – Candidates for Governor continued to campaign across Wisconsin Sunday, with the recall primaries Tuesday.
Governor Scott Walker stopped in Appleton Sunday.
He said he wants to thank the supporters who've backed him throughout the recall process, and added he wants to remind those supporters that he's being challenged on Tuesday's Republican Primary Ballot.
Arthur Kohl-Riggs is running against Walker in the GOP primary race.
Walker said he has made good on his campaign promises while in office, and come Tuesday, voters will be faced with an important choice.
"Tuesday it will become clear if people want to go forward with our reforms or go backwards to the days of tax increases, billion dollar budget deficits and record job loss," Walker said.
"I think people want to keep moving forward," the Governor added.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is widely seen as the man to beat for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination.
Barrett campaigned in Milwaukee Sunday.
He said, despite being labeled as the front runner, he's not thinking ahead to the June 5 general election.
"I've not started any plans for the general election," Barrett said. "I've seen many people who've looked over the shoulder of somebody else and ended up not having anything in the end."
"We're putting all our energy into getting out the voters on Tuesday," Barrett said.
On Barrett's heels for the Democratic nod is former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk.
On a campaign stop in Wausau Sunday, Falk said she thinks her campaign has the wide array of support needed to oust the governor.
"I've got the best record on job production out of any candidate running and I've got this big grassroots coalition of teachers, nurses, environmentalists and community organizers," Falk said. "That big coalition that got us the one million recall signatures (against the Governor) is behind my campaign."
Also Tuesday's Democratic primary ballot are Secretary of State Doug La Follette and State Senator Kathleen Vinehout, of Alma.
