SUPERIOR-Walker entered the Republican Party of Douglas County's "Victory Center", Wasting no time in name dropping two local politicians: Current Superior Mayor Bruce Hagen and former Mayor Dave Ross.Hagen has deep roots at the capitol and Ross now serves on the governor’s cabinet. This was just one connection Walker offered during his Northland visit/campaign to stay in office.Supporters applauded upon his mention of the state's $154 million surplus.His opponent in the upcoming election, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, says it is because of unacceptable, regressive policies that forbade most forms of state collective bargaining.The governor responded. "Contrast that to the failed record of the mayor in Milwaukee where taxes and fees have gone up 43%, where Milwaukee now is one of the ten most poorest big cities in the country, and where, most importantly, unemployment's gone up 28% since he's taken office and you can see why they don't want to talk about my record or his,” Walker said. The governor spoke in Superior less than 24 hours after a heated debate. Also on Saturday, Mayor Barrett toured the Burlington Chocolate Factory in Racine County. Next week he plans to travels around the state to attend the Early Vote rallies in Stevens Point, Janesville, and Appleton.
