Barrett makes campaign stop in La Crosse
Four democrats are currently vying for the chance to face Scott Walker in June's recall election.
One of them is Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who brought his campaign to La Crosse today. He showed up along with Congressman Ron Kind, who's already given Barrett his endorsement.
Barrett says if elected he'll restore "trust" in Wisconsin's government. He also says he'll create jobs.
Barrett was the democratic nominee who lost to Walker in the 2010 gubernatorial election, but he says that's not shaking his confidence. He also says he's not surprised by the campaign ads currently being run against him.
"The Republican Governor's Association and Scott Walker clearly don't want me to emerge from the Democratic primary," Barrett said. "So they're devoting a lot of their resources to try to undercut me in the primary which I think underscores one of the points that we've been making which is that I'm the strongest candidate to be running against Scott Walker."
Also up for that democratic nomination: Secretary of State Doug La Follette, state Senator Kathleen Vinehout and former Dane County executive Kathleen Falk. The primary is May 8th.
