With only a few days until Election Day, Gov. Scott Walker and his Democratic challenger Tony Evers each stopped in Rhinelander Friday as part their final campaign swings through the state. Evers is traveling in a yellow school bus for his “tour for change,” and Walker, celebrating his birthday, is touring the state with Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch in a coach bus.
At Red Arrow Products, a manufacturer of liquid smoke and other cooking flavors, Kleefisch spoke to the Republican supporters in attendance, telling them a small business tax credit under the Walker administration would disappear if Evers is elected.
“The manufacturers and agriculture tax credit is gone,” she said. “That’s gonna cost Wisconsin jobs, guys. All of the governor’s hard work, the collective hard work to bring this economy back could go away in a moment under Tony Evers.”
The race, Walker said, couldn’t be clearer.
“If you want more jobs and higher wages, then I’m your candidate,” he said. “If you want more spending and higher taxes that will lead to fewer jobs, then vote for Tony Evers.”
Touting the low unemployment rate, Walker said on the state website, “everyday there are about 100,000 job openings; that means there are more career opportunities in the state of Wisconsin than there are technically unemployed people to fill them.”
