MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- They threw verbal punches in the same room. But one day after the governor's debate, the two candidates, hitting the campaign trail hours from each other.

Less than 24 hours after squaring off, the candidates hit the road.

"I don't know how many of you watched the debate last night," said Mary Burke.

Saturday afternoon, Democratic candidate Mary Burke makes a stop at UW-Milwaukee with the U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren.

"It's just good to be here with a fighter like Mary Burke," said Warren.

There is little to talk about the debate.

"Wisconsin is dead last in terms of job creation," said Burke.

And more focus on jobs and education.

"Our job growth under Scott Walker is dead last in the Midwest," said Burke.

Not answering media questions after the event, Burke left firing up the room.

"Let's go get em!" said Burke.

In Green Bay...

"I think people wanted to hear from me, and I think we were successful," said Scott Walker.

Governor Walker celebrated the expansion of a brewery -- confident about his performance Friday.

"I wanted to have a discussion about the future of the state and not so much a tit-for-tat," said Walker.

Touting job growth, and criticizing his opponent.

"We rank in the top of five in the Midwest, not where my opponent keeps repeating that false myth out of there," Walker said.

Both candidates, continuing on in the home stretch -- ready to square off again soon, and optimistic they will sway voters by November.

Both candidates will go head-to-head next Friday. That debate will take place right here in Milwaukee.
