On Sunday morning, Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin) and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (D-Candidate for Governor) will join host Robert Hornacek on CW 14 Focus .
The program is not a debate. Instead, it's an in depth conversation where Robert interviews each candidate one-on-one.
The topics covered in include jobs:
"I ask people just look at the facts," Walker said. "Don't look at the hype, don't look at the commercials, compare the numbers. Over 96% of the employers surveyed give the numbers that show we've gained, or a sample of three and a half percent on a monthly basis that show something very different. I think people the more accurate sample isn't just a sample, it's the real numbers."
"I think people are smart enough to say, wow, he came up with those numbers 20 days before the election, that's amazing," Barrett said. "Well, there's a reason for that. He had the commercials cut by the time those numbers hit the press. So clearly there was some coordination going on."
Both candidates talked about the role of outside money in the race.
"I believe the taxpayers, the hard working taxpayers at the local level should be the ones calling the shots not a handful of special interests and that's something I'm willing to stand up for time and time again," Walker said.
When asked what the difference was between the outside money spent against him and the outside money he's raised, Walker replied, "Well, a couple things. One, I wouldn't have to raise or spend a penny, we wouldn't be having this election if it wasn't for the initial investment of money from Washington special interests, the big government unions in particular."
"When it comes to the big out-of-state unions, he's got the wrong guy," Barrett said. "Because I wasn't the guy who was getting that money and if you look at the primary, I was outspent in the primary. So he complains a lot about those big public unions, let's be honest, I wasn't their candidate. So it's difficult for him to rail against them now when I'm the one emerged from the primary."
As for the controversial changes to collective bargaining for public employees, Barrett says he wants to undo the changes. Walker says it's time to move on.
"I don't want to go through this again," Barrett said. "What I've said is Scott Walker has started this civil war it's been a civil war. I think people around the state would agree. And frankly, as I talk to people around the state, they're tired of all of this. They're tired of all of this. And I'll end the civil war. But I think it's fair that people have the right to organize. I think it's fair that people have the right to bargain."
"When the election passes, we can move on and move forward," Walker said. "I'm the only candidate who wants to move forward. I don't want to replay the debate of last year. My opponent wants to go back and undue collective bargaining which is the whole same debate over again. Which means if he was to win we'd have, probably a year later, another attempt to recall. I think most people in this state, including a lot of independents and discerning Democrats, want to move on. They want to move forward they want to get beyond this."
