By The WTMJ News Team. CREATED Apr 1, 2012

MADISON - A new poll by shows both Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk neck and neck as they battle to face Governor Scott Walker in a potential general election.

The poll comes on the heels of similar recent results in polling done by Marquette University Law School, showing Falk making big gains on both Barrett and Walker in just over a month.

Previous polls had Barrett leading Falk by a larger margin.

Barrett announced his candidacy for governor in the recall election late Friday afternoon.
