MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Two weeks of trading barbs over outsourcing is enough for the two major candidates for Wisconsin governor -- at least one of them, anyway.
Democrat Mary Burke's campaign says it will start running a new TV ad Wednesday on a previous subject. It returns the focus to the 250,000 private sector jobs the Republican Walker promised to create during his four-year term.
Walker's people admit adding just over 100,000 jobs -- well below what the Republican promised when he asked voters to elect him in 2010. The governor said he would have done better had it not been for years of job losses under former Democratic Governor Jim Doyle.
Burke was Doyle's commerce secretary late in that tenure.
Walker also tries to highlight the state's unemployment rate of 5.7 percent, the lowest since the Great Recession began in earnest in late 2008.
