Governor makes one last La Crosse stop

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

La Crosse, Wis.  (WXOW)  – Governor Scott Walker made one final stop in La Crosse Monday morning, with less than 24 hours to election day.  Accompanied by Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, the two spoke to employees at Dakota Supply Group.

The Governor made several recent visits to the Coulee Region, his last visit to a local business being this past Friday.   That was the day the latest Marquette poll showed both Governor Walker and his challenger Tony Evers in a virtual tie at 47 percent.

Walker said his return to the area in part helps energize his supporters.

“We get some people who are long time activists, getting them energized.  They keep making those last minute phone calls and knocking on doors and talking to neighbors.  To others, it’s literally talking to voters who work here who may be still up in the air,” he said.

The early stop in La Crosse was the beginning of the day for Walker and Kleefisch.  Their day before the election schedule included stop at Superior and De Pere.
