Walker, Burke to meet for final debate

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — With the race for Wisconsin governor tied less than three weeks before the election, Gov. Scott Walker and Democrat Mary Burke are scheduled to meet for their second and final debate.

Friday night’s debate in Milwaukee between Walker and Burke is set to be broadcast nationwide.

A Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday showed the race to be tied.

Walker is vying for a second term on the argument that he’s turned around the state’s economy, added more than 100,000 jobs while also cutting taxes by about $2 billion.

Burke says Walker has failed in his first term and isn’t advocating for the middle class, as shown by his opposition to increasing the minimum wage.

The election is Nov. 4.
