MILWAUKEE — Dem Mary Burke Friday slammed Gov. Scott Walker for what she said was a lagging economy, knocking his claim the state does not
have a jobs problem.

In their second and final debate, Walker countered by seeking to tie Burke to his predecessor, Jim Doyle. Walker said several times through the course of the
hour-long exchange that his Dem rival had previously said she completely supported Doyle’s policies, which he said led to a fiscal mess in Wisconsin that
he cleaned up after taking office.

Walker accused her of saying one thing and doing another, saying it’s something people hate about politics.
