Both Gov. Scott Walker and challenger Mary Burke visited supporters in Racine County Sunday with similar messages about the importance of getting out the vote.
Walker appeared at the Brand farm in Raymond with Congressman Paul Ryan and Republican National Committee Chair Reince Preibus, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and 21st Senate Candidate Van Wanggaard.
With only 2 days until election day, the candidates need every vote they can get. The most recent Marquette University Law School poll has the governor and Burke neck-and-neck among registered voters; 46 to 45 percent, respectively. Among likely voters, Walker leads Burke, 50 to 43 percent.
Burke visited the home of Kelly Gallaher and Dan Dimler in Mount Pleasant before making a stop at Second Missionary Baptist Church on Lathrop Avenue. Democratic hopefuls John Lehman and Rob Zerban were also there.
While Walker is confident Republicans will prevail in both the state Senate and the Assembly, Burke thinks Democrats have a fighting chance in the Senate.
“I don’t think we’ll see much change in the Assembly,” she admitted. “But we have some good races in the Senate so we might see some changes there.”
Election day is Tuesday, and the polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voting information for each community east of I-94 can be found here.
