MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says Gov. Scott Walker will definitely sign a bill making Wisconsin a right to work state.

Barrett said in a debate Thursday, "Mark my words, he'll sign it."

Walker says the bill will never pass, but he refuses to say whether he would veto such a bill. He again on Thursday refused to say whether he would sign or veto such a bill, saying that was a hypothetical he wouldn't address.

Barrett says Walker would have a "fall from grace with the far right if he would say he's going to veto that."

The hour-long debate in Milwaukee was broadcast statewide.
