"We have seven days to go!" Speaking to a packed coffee house in Wisconsin Rapids Tuesday, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett told supporters it's now their turn to get the word out.
"That means if you can vote early, vote early. Tell others to vote because that's what this election is all about," Barrett said.
Joining him on the campaign trail is former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, who shot down criticism that the recall election of Gov. Scott Walker is unwarranted.
"This is more than policy," Feingold said. "This is an extreme tactic to compromise the rights of Wisconsinites."
Barrett also continued to highlight the John Doe investigation, including Walker's reluctance to reveal emails from 2010.
"He refuses to answer any questions, even questions as basic as who's paying his criminal defense fun fees," Barrett said.
Meanwhile, Walker dismissed the comments, saying Barrett's only talking points are attacks against him. At a manufacturing plant in Waukesha Tuesday, he told reporters, if he's elected next week, it will send the message Wisconsin is headed in the right direction and his reforms are working.
"The numbers that all of the economists, including the ones who backed my opponent, agree on is that Wisconsin gained jobs in 2011 and is gaining jobs in 2012," Walker said.
More numbers are also coming in Tuesday. It's the deadline for both Barrett and Walker to submit their latest campaign finance reports. Walker has raised $30 million since he took office, while Barrett has raised $3.1 million for the recall. But both sides agree, the numbers that are going to matter are those that turn out at the polls.
