SCHOFIELD (WAOW) –There are only a few days left in the race for governor. Governor Scott Walker kicked off his campaign bus tour right here in central Wisconsin.

Governor Walker visited Jarp Industries in Schofield Thursday morning. He spoke to employees and guests about how important manufacturing jobs are to the state.

Besides jobs, Walker also focused on both candidate’s recent TV advertisements. He said democratic challenger Mary Burke’s ad’s are only aimed at attacking him, and not focusing on issues.

“Literally almost every on TV from my opponent is an attack ad many of them distorting the facts if not outright false,” said Walker. “In contrast, my ads are me directly talking to the voters of the state talking about what I’m for, what I want to take to this state and hope people can see the difference.”

Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and senator Ron Johnson also joined the governor. The last Marquette University Law School poll released shows Walker ahead with 50 percent support, compared with 43 percent for Burke among likely voters.
