Gov. Scott Walker says complacency and fatigue among Republican voters is one of his biggest concerns as he faces re-election in less than 10 weeks.

Walker addressed his concerns Friday during an interview with a Milwaukee radio station. Walker was asked about a poll released on Wednesday indicating that Democrats were more enthused about the upcoming election that Republicans. Walker calls that "one of my biggest concerns."

The Marquette University Law School poll showed the race between Walker and Democrat Mary Burke to be a dead heat, both among registered and likely voters.

Walker says there is Republican voter fatigue after the 2010 election and two series of recalls in both 2011 and 2012.

Walker says in the coming weeks he will be announcing details about what he calls an aggressive agenda should he be re-elected.
