Scott Walker softens remarks about RGA, Chris Christie

President Barack Obama will be in the state later today for a rally with Dem guv candidate Mary Burke at Milwaukee’s North Division High School.

The visit follows an appearance in Milwaukee by former President Bill Clinton last week, but Burke yesterday downplayed her campaign’s emphasis on the state’s largest city.

“I’m talking to voters across the state about the same things,” Burke told reporters after delivering pizzas to volunteers at the campaign’s downtown Madison office.

“It’s our lagging economy right now … and education, and that ties into our economy.”

She also rejected criticism from Gov. Scott Walker that she’s attempting to drive up Dem turnout rather than court independent voters.
