Burke to supporters: Get out and vote, this race depends on it

Posted:
(WQOW)-  Mary Burke held a rally with students in Madison Monday afternoon, following a stop in the Fox Valley.

A few dozen supporters welcomed the democratic candidate to the downtown Appleton campaign office. And Burke had a clear message for those supporters, get out and vote, because she says, this race depends upon it.

She also spoke with reporters, and responded to remarks from Governor Walker. He says the latest jobs numbers show big gains in recent months.
"He's cherry-picking the numbers. You have to go over the long term. Whether you look at 2014 as a whole, right now it's on track to be the worst year of job creation in the last five, or you go over Governor Walker's entire term in office we're dead last in the Midwest," said Burke. 


Both candidates battling over job numbers is likely to remain the story line of this race for the next two weeks.
