Walker’s Election Day

By Cassandra Duvall . CREATED Jun 5, 2012

GREEN BAY, WI – Gov. Walker is not letting Election Day slow down him down. Walker had a full schedule on Tuesday, making stops throughout the state. He stopped in Green Bay, and was joined by the Lt. Gov., who is also up for Recall.

The Gov. continues touring manufacturing companies. This has been a theme for the last few weeks and throughout this recall campaign. He spoke not just about the results for today, but how he's looking to the future.

“I feel cautiously optimistic,” Walker said. “For me, I don't take anything for granted. I'm fighting for every vote out there."

Gov. Walker’s day started bright and early.  At 7:00 a.m., he was the 51st voter in his hometown of Wauwatosa. Later, he headed to Green Bay stopping at Ace Marine. Walker asked the employees to cast their ballots in this historic race.

“You don't ever want to spike the football on the 10 yard line, you want to get into the end zone,” Walker said using a football analogy. “That's what we're focused on; we're not taking any vote for granted.”

Walker said he's looking toward tomorrow.

“No matter who they vote for today, we want to help everybody in this state have a better quality of life for themselves and for their families,” he said.

Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefish was also at Walker’s side Tuesday morning. Walker has only been in office 17 months.

“I hope the voters of this state will choose to allow us to go forward and I think that's something people can appreciate across party lines,” he said.

The pair also made their way to Wausau later in the afternoon. There will be an election night rally in Waukesha. Doors open at 8:00 p.m. to the general public at the County Exposition Center. That’s where walker will watch the final votes come in.
