Walker speeds release of positive jobs data

“It is, I think, stunning that Scott Walker has suddenly found 57,000 jobs and gone from negative to positive three weeks before an election,” said Barrett campaign spokesman Phil Walzak. “The timing is enormously suspicious. . . . Clearly the governor is losing the argument on jobs with the people of Wisconsin, and he’s now trotting out these new figures in an extremely unusual way.”

Fitzgerald doubts challenger Lori Compas runs her own campaign

For the record, Fitzgerald said he doesn’t buy Compas’ Pollyanna image. He knows some people are painting the race as a David-vs.-Goliath contest.
