Back to campaign trail for both gubernatorial candidates Wednesday

STEVENS POINT, WI (WTAQ) - Now that Mary Burke is officially the Democratic nominee, both she and Republican Scott Walker are keeping their governor's campaigns rolling Wednesday.

Burke skipped Election Night parties, where she could have celebrated getting 83 percent of the vote over long shot Brett Hulsey Tuesday.

However, the Burke camp made it a point to ignore Hulsey and keep its focus directly on Walker. The former Trek Bicycle executive and Doyle commerce secretary is staying in northern Wisconsin -- where she warned about the consequences of people losing jobs and leaving the area during an interview in Rhinelander.

She's in Minocqua Wednesday.

Walker, meanwhile, returns to the Stevens Point area for a campaign stop at a machining factory. That's close to where he kicked off Wisconsin Farm Technology Days Tuesday near Plover.

Walker is also starting a TV ad which touts the gains of over 100,000 jobs created during his four-year term. That's about 40 percent of the jobs he promised when he first ran in 2010. Burke has been constantly reminding voters of that in her TV ads.
