Gov. Candidates Getting Big-Name Help

By Cassandra Duvall . CREATED Jun 1, 2012

MILWAUKEE, WI – Both candidates for Governor are getting help from some big-name politicians. Tom Barrett is getting support from President Bill Clinton at a rally in Milwaukee.

Clinton’s main message was cooperation. He said groups have to work as one to put the state of Wisconsin back together.  

“Cooperation works, constant conflict is a dead bang loser, and you need to get rid of it,” he said.

He added people around the country are looking to Wisconsin during this recall, and it's about a shared sacrifice and not the "winner take all" strategy or divide and conquer.

“When you get everyone who's got a stake in the game, treat them with respect and people go forward together,” Clinton said. “That's how you get out of a ditch.”

But Barrett is not the only one with political allies.

In Sussex, WI, Gov. Walker was touring Quad Graphics with South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

“Are you going to reward the courage that he showed? Are you going to respond to the results he gave you, are you going to go back to where it was?” said Haley.

Gov. Haley said she and Walker are among the group of governors, who are making the tough decisions.

“This wave of governors that was elected in 2010 said we will never be judged by what we say, we will always be judged by what we do,” said Gov. Haley.

One common theme from both rallies was encouraging everyone to vote on Tuesday.
