MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- During the last day before voters head to the polls this Tuesday, November 4th, both Governor Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke will make appearances across the state in the race for governor — doing everything they can to sway undecided voters.

On Monday, November 3rd, Governor Walker will make six campaign stops, ending the day in Waukesha. Mary Burke will make  five campaign stops, ending the day in Madison.

During this past weekend,  both made appearances across the state in the race for governor.

Governor Walker greeted supporters on Sunday afternoon, November 2nd at the GOP Field Office in Kenosha. There, he was greeted with a birthday cake, as Sunday marked his 47th birthday.

Governor Walker says Wisconsin is on the right path under his leadership — saying more people are going back to work. He is also touting his tax cuts for working families.

“Last month alone, we had the best month for private sector job growth in more than a decade,” Governor Walker said.

He was joined on the campaign trail Sunday by Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and Congressman Paul Ryan.

There was plenty to talk about, including recent allegations Mary Burke got the pink slip from her family’s company, Trek Bicycle.

“She was fired by her own family,” Paul Ryan said.

“We`ve chosen not to be involved with that because we couldn`t validate that one way or the other. Our focus is what we`re for, not what we`re against,” Governor Walker said.

Meanwhile, Mary Burke was busy Sunday rallying supporters in Milwaukee.

“For Wisconsin to be thriving, we need a thriving Milwaukee and a thriving central city,” Burke said.

Burke’s team assembled to canvass parts of the city — knocking on doors to encourage everyone to hit the polls on November 4th.

Burke says she gets up every morning with even more energy than she did at the start of this race.

In Milwaukee, Burke rallied supporters and also took some eleventh-hour shots at her opponent.

“Governor Walker has had four years, and he has not gotten the job done. Our economy is lagging,” Burke said.

With the campaign in its final leg, both candidates say they have no regrets.

“I’m proud — in fact I had a bunch of people here today and in Racine County and in Walworth County and Rock County earlier today tell us how proud they are that we’re finishing off this campaign strong and with a positive message. I think people are sick and tired of all the attack ads,” Governor Walker said.

“I’m the type of person who always looks forward — certainly learn from mistakes, but I’m focused on how we grow Wisconsin’s economy, how we improve education here, and how we make sure that everyone gets that fair shot,” Burke said.

The polls open at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 4th.

The Government Accountability Board said Friday morning more than 240,000 have cast absentee ballots for this General Election.

    Hi! I just want to encourage you all to go out tomorrow and vote. Please remeber to cast your vote for the rich white lady who got fired from her own family business and then took 5 years off to go “snowboard in Spain”. Clearly, she understands those of us who have struggled all of our lives towards the great American Dream. When her family name and money got her into Harvard, sge completely understood the pain of sacrifice parents must make to help their children ibtain education that will improve their lives. When she got her first career job at her Daddy’s company, she gained the life experience most of us have of having to applt and interview repeatedly, then work our way up the leadership ladder. When she quit working to snowboard and be the President of a country club, she totally understood what it feels like to work even when you dont want to so that your family can have food on the table. So…tomorrow. ..vote Mary Burke. Shes totally one of us… as long as you are also a rich white lady.

    it would be fun to watch mary burke have to try to get a real job in the private sector with her incredibly unimpressive and hole-filled resume. she’s not even qualified to be a door greeter at a walmart store.
