Walker, Barrett Kick off Final Campaign Push

Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Tom Barrett are launching their final campaign push as the clock ticks toward Tuesday's recall election.

Walker began Saturday by handing out yogurt and applesauce at the annual Rock County Dairy Breakfast on a farm just outside Evansville. Some people shook his hand and thanked him for the job he's done, but many simply thanked him as he put yogurt on their plates and moved on.

The recall was spurred by anger over Walker's plan effectively ending most public workers' collective bargaining rights. The governor plans to spend the rest of the day visiting his campaign offices around the state, while Barrett is touring northwestern Wisconsin.

Tea party members, meanwhile, plan a rally in Caledonia.
