MADISON (WITI) -- On the eve of the November 4th General Election, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke made campaign stops in Eau Claire, Superior, Stevens Point and Green Bay before making her way to Madison to host a party, thanking her volunteers.

Senator Tammy Baldwin joined Burke in Madison for the party that was planned for 8:00 p.m. at the American Federation for Teachers building.

"All we gotta do is get people to the polls. The votes are there. The people are out there," Burke said Monday.

Burke's day began around 9:00 a.m. Monday, with a stop in Eau Claire. There, she helped campaign volunteers kick off a last-minute canvass of voters.

From there, she headed to Superior, and then Stevens Point, and then Green Bay.

More than 100 volunteers were expected at Monday night's party in Madison. It was expected to be an informal event, with Burke and Baldwin meeting with those volunteers.

Those volunteers have been going door-to-door throughout West Madison's 38 wards.

They started their day around 8:00 a.m., and they'll be back at it Tuesday -- continuing until 8:00 p.m., when the polls close.

"Bringing people together, and making sure that it's the people that are being heard, and not the big-money special interests," Burke said Monday.

Burke says she's looking forward to Election Day.

"I set my alarm for 4:30 every morning and I am up before the alarm even rings because I am fired up and ready to go. All those attack ads and these lies and everything else - I'll tell you this - the tougher they get, the tougher I get," Burke said in Eau Claire Monday.

Burke will make three stops on Election Day, and that includes a stop in Milwaukee.

Burke hopes to celebrate a victory in Madison on Tuesday night.


  • wtf

    Her ads are repulsive..ands distasteful…she supports obummer care…and trek ships jobs overseas..she cant even keep a job at the family company..God save the country.THE state of Wisconsin…vote for our futures our for Walker

  • Flipper

    Quick…multiple choice question: I’m fired up and ready to go… (A) snowboarding, (B) home, (C) to work.

  • taxpayer

    I will bet my life on it this will be a complete blow out. No way Burke will ever win Wisconsin isn’t that stupid. Anyone who has ever been fired from a job isn’t a great candidate for leadership.

  • That's Mr. Koch, if you please.

    And here come Walker’s paid posters in 3..2..1..
    See also- the part in the John Doe investigation where his buddies were going to blog sites saying that Walker was the best thing since the invention of sliced bread!
    You should read it sometime. Some great stuff in there!

      Wait….hold on a second. So, Walkers friends, people who believed in him, were making comments in support of him!? Whoa! That is totally crazy! Mary Burke would never allow that! She only lets friends and former coworkers say negative things about her. She’s all class.

      Crossing guards are entrusted with the safety of children. There is no way I would ever let Mary Burke be a crossing guard. lol

  • Chris Multerer

    That’s Mr.Koch..I agree. Walker is full of you know what, and not on the up and up. But Burke is incompetent. She woke up one morning because she was bored and decided to run for governor.

    • Ritionga

      The Dems really should have given us a better choice/candidate. Giving us Mary Burke with a straight face really revealed their underlying belief that we are stupid and will vote for anyone who isn’t Scott Walker. Bad move.
