KENOSHA- Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in a last minute push to energize crowds across the state to get people to put him in the governor's office.

Tom Barrett took the stage in front of a fiery crowd in Kenosha Monday.  "It feels great and the energy I'm feeling around the state is just amazing," said Barrett.

It was just one of several stops across the state Monday, including one in La Crosse -- arguing he's the better choice to be your governor.

"Scott Walker's always wanted to make this a national race because I think he's got a desire to be on the national stage.  For me, I think this has always been about Wisconsin values and that's one of the main differences," said Barrett.

Barrett stayed true to his message, going after Walker on the John Doe investigation, collective bargaining, and out of state campaign contributions.

"This is really an election about the middle class in the state, and to have a governor who's going to fight for the middle class."

And he's hoping when the polls open, voters will fight for him.  "They've had their fun, now it's our time, it's our time."

Barrett was to cast his ballot just after 7:00 a.m. at a school near his home in Milwaukee.

Then, he was to head to events at the Labor Center in Racine at 11:00 a.m. and in Brown Deer at 2:00 p.m. before holding his election night party at the Milwaukee Hilton after 8:00 p.m.

TODAY'S TMJ4's Annie Scholz will be with the Barrett campaign on election day, and bring you the very latest from this camp throughout the day.
