The challenger in the recall race for governor of Wisconsin has his focus on the Badger State...not on a national stage.
Democrat Tom Barrett tells reporters in La Crosse that he has tried to concentrate on statewide issues in his second run against Scott Walker. The mayor of Milwaukee believes Governor Walker has been too eager to make the recall race a preview of the presidential election.
La Crosse Congressman Ron Kind drove Barrett up to Jules' Coffee House on Pearl Street for a local appearance this morning.
A vote for Tom Barrett would be a vote for more recall elections in Wisconsin.
Governor Scott Walker makes that argument, in a final campaign swing through the La Crosse area before the Tuesday recall. Walker tells reporters at West Salem that Democrats would push for more recall elections if Barrett becomes governor. But if Walker is re-elected, that would be a call to lawmakers to change the recall law.
Although at least one person greeting Walker in West Salem wore a 'Scott Walker for President' shirt, Walker says he's not interested in seeking a higher office...because he expects to keep his current job.
Money and a strong ground efffort...that, plain and simple, will get Governor Scott Walker over the recall hump tomorrow. RNC Chair, Reince Priebus also says, the support is not just within the Wisconsin border.
Priebus said during a news conference Friday, that it takes more then money to win an election, it takes people and that's what will help Walker defeat Tom Barrett tomorrow.
So after the announcment last week that La Crosse Promise Future Centers will open in August in area La Crosse School District schools........the question now is who will staff these centers and the La Crosse Promise.

In December of last year, after two years of extensive study and discussions with diverse groups throughout the region, La Crosse Promise decided to go forward with plans to open Future Centers this fall if they could raise $250 thousand for each of the next 3 years. And they did.
So what about the senate recall elections tomorrow. They seem to be buried behind the Governor's recall election. UW-L Political Scientist, Joe Heim, says don't expect any democratic shockers to take place as the republicans all seem to be favorored tomorrow.
New polls last week showed Republicans with healthy leads in three of the four state Senate recall fights.

The last remaining Logan High School teacher to have taught at both the 'old' Logan and the current building starts her retirement this week...
English teacher Dorina Lukins, a U-W-La Crosse graduate, says she didn't think how long she might be a teacher when she started at Logan in 1978. Lukins was given a serenade by a group of bagpipers during her last full day at the high school on Friday.
