Governor Walker urges big turnout, admits being in same party as President Trump is hurdle

The Steve Scaffidi Show

Listen to Governor Walker's interview with Steve Scaffidi below.


Republican Gov. Scott Walker is urging his supporters to get out and vote as polls show him deadlocked with Democrat Tony Evers.

   Both Walker and Evers were campaigning across the state on Thursday, just five days before the election.

   Walker has long said this will be his toughest election yet, and he emphasized that Thursday in an interview with WTMJ-AM. Walker says being the same party as the sitting president in his first midterm election is a hurdle as is running for a third term. Only one other governor, Tommy Thompson, has been elected to a third four-year term in Wisconsin.

   Walker says "if the facts are out to voters, we win the election. If the lies are out, we don't."

   Evers argues that Walker has failed to lead on education, health care and infrastructure and eight years in office is enough.
