Welcome back everybody about it in Wisconsin you'll have it -- here -- where waiting again tomorrow whether of the third governor United States history called.
By voters in the state is ultimately doomed then down to defeat and leads in the state right now polls so Wisconsin governor Scott Walker leading.
But very you so much wiggle room here in fact.
When you consider that up -- Down bottom -- five points of the fact that the race is essentially even a guy says that this governor has to go was Jim probably -- -- that was -- the professional.
Police associations he's the executive director if you might -- protesters in the background but six Jim this with the police association he's just gonna beat.
Come up with it comes to that on -- scale -- very good at united draft you argue this stuff got to go.
Why why you know -- the State's largest law enforcement they're group and we're also labor organization and we think Scott Walker has fallen woefully short on both counts.
Not only was he not straightforward with people -- voters in 2010 as.
As it relates his plans to reform collective bargaining in the -- actually eviscerate collective bargaining.
But he has seen.
Do that he said he would.
Plus what he didn't say really that that -- was silence was deafening and in fact.
There was a report today in that State's largest newspaper last Friday night and Saturday that there -- constituents that had written his campaign asked.
No public employee constituents a potential constituents.
-- his campaign whether or not you know where the some of these collective -- changes going to apply to them and and they were told point blankly.
That they were not and as we now know.
Almost immediately after taking office Scott -- sought to restrict collective bargaining -- -- look at what what are we left the gym that if it's.
If voters in this state seem to give them -- high approval rating.
And they seem to think that that the economy's picking up unemployment rate is down.
That whatever he did as controversial as it was at the time -- winner when this puzzle thousands of people protested.
Things that have gone his way and not.
You went well I don't think most people in this state would -- the economy is really turning around you know we -- as he had the approval rating and -- well 51% approval rating by Paul I don't know that that's overwhelming and it's certainly is commanded I think given.
All the turmoil -- the matter is over a million almost a million -- Fifteen to read this.
So I think there's not a lot of discontent out they're not only with -- what he did but the manner by which he did.
Do you think that this is union sort of Waterloo that didn't even make it here or where they're finished.
I think this is this is definitely a big fight for the unions but I get a lose you lose tomorrow.
But if the unions lose I think -- is it'll be eight is that back then that that goes without saying I think that it really has -- this issue this election is.
Broader than just the labor unions.
About how we govern and whether restraint for the people I'll think discovered.
I don't know argued that people in this state are not as safe now as a result of these cuts in the police cuts they've done studies.
Of the numbers -- a -- one point 7%.
Serious but not it's a big one editorial put it not draconian as -- presented what he's what we think that this year there's a 73 million dollar president of local funding that day is used to pay for public safety services that that -- is implemented this year.
So I think that you know -- in this economic environment we know that officers over the last five years in this statement just in Wisconsin have seen -- more than 200% increase.
In the number of assaults on them in line of duty and -- now finally the single largest cut last decade of the funding that used public safety so.
They always -- is -- gotten less safe today.
We think it would certainly will be down the road if -- survives this.
Are you worried.
In general just -- absolutely I'm worried about a number of things I'm worried about the messages that -- up from a societal perspective.
We believe that Scott Walker should go on for a number three.
Out but it's clear he is maintained just an overwhelming funding advantage.
You guys are core radicals a lot of outside union money coming in his body both sides a lot of money -- a -- -- -- the last record I saw last report I saw.
-- governor Walker's outspending Tom -- by.
Now I believe they get out the vote effort that you're seeing.
For those supporting Tom -- his historic -- and I think they'll make a difference but I'm.
What -- strong voice we appreciate that I got it.
Very at -- -- we'll see what happens thinker.
Are you might have heard you know what.
