Just one day after the primary election, both Governor Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke are back out on the campaign trail.
Both Walker and Burke made stops today in Northcentral Wisconsin.

Walker toured a high tech manufacturing facility in Stevens Point, while Burke spent the afternoon talking with small business owners in Minocqua.

Governor Walker says that with just 11 weeks to go until the general election, getting around to all parts of the state is key.

"I get outside of Madison and Milwaukee. That is an area I have done well in the past. We are going to make a renewed emphasis whether it is in Stevens Point or Plover or Wausau or Tomahawk or Marshfield or Wisconsin Rapids, this is a part of the state I believe we can do well in. " Governor Walker says.

During her time in Minocqua, Mary Burke talked with local business owners about their concerns. For her, going all across the state is an important aspect of connecting with voters.

"You hear about the challenges but you hear about the opportunities and how we can help businesses expand and grow." Burke says.
