Democratic gubernatorial candidate Kathleen Falk makes stop in La Crosse

LA CROSSE, Wis.– Democrat Kathleen Falk is running in the potential recall against Governor Scott Walker and Wednesday she picked up a major endorsement.

The Wisconsin Education Association Council or WEAC says it is backing  Falk. WEAC is the largest teachers union in the state.

At a stop in La Crosse Wednesday, Falk said one of her first priorities as governor would be to restore workers rights.

Falk says there is one message she keeps hearing from voters during her campaign. “They just want their state back to the simple values that we share, decent education, decent healthcare, clean air and water and a decent paying job, and they just want a governor who is on their side,” says Falk.


La Crosse was Falk’s final stop on a two-day tour of the state. Recall petitions are still being reviewed by state officials.
