MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The race for governor in Wisconsin is likely to largely hinge on the state’s jobs performance.

The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics has ranked Wisconsin 35th in private sector job growth, an improvement from a ranking of 37th three months ago.

Democrat Mary Burke says the progress is "not good enough" and that the rankings show the state continues to under perform on that measure.

Governor Scott Walker responded by saying the numbers are "significant" and the state is "putting people back to work."

The Bureau of Lablor Statistics reported that the Wisconsin added some 28,300 positions during the 12-month period ending in September 2013.
