FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - More than 100 motorcyclists joined Governor Scott Walker on a ride in the southeast third of Wisconsin.
Walker has taken previous motorcycle trips throughout the state to promote Milwaukee County when he was the county executive.
This weekend's truncated version highlighted the Republican governor's re-election campaign.
On Saturday, Walker and his supporters rode from Kenosha to Rothschild, near Wausau. Sunday, they headed south to Fond du Lac, and then to Madison.
At Fond du Lac, it was raining heavily when they stopped at the city Harley-Davidson dealership.
Walker said that as he meets voters, he hopes they'll realize the state is better off today than four years ago.
Walker is in a tight re-election battle with Democrat Mary Burke. Last week's Marquette law school poll gave Walker a one-point lead among registered voters, and Burke a one-point lead among likely voters -- although about half of those polled still didn't know enough about the challenger to form an opinion about her.
