Walker touts Thompson campaign at fundraiser

Gov. Scott Walker says it will take money, a good message and manpower for Tommy Thompson to win Wisconsin’s Senate race.

Walker delivered the message at a Sunday fundraiser for Thompson hosted by Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan.

Walker says Thompson has the better message than Democrat Tammy Baldwin in the Senate race. And Walker says Republicans have made 2 million voter contacts since July to help both Mitt Romney and Thompson’s campaigns in Wisconsin.

Walker says Thompson “doesn’t need” to be elected to the Senate, but the children and grandchildren of the state need him in that role.

Walker shared the stage with Thompson, Ryan and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.
