GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - Today Governor Scott Walker used his Republican star power to fire up voters in our area.
He stopped at the Republican victory centers in Green Bay and Fond du Lac.
The Governor asked volunteers to keep making phone calls and talking with friends and neighbors to increase voter turnout.
It is critical for the party in this region.
In 2008 Brown County went democratic, however constituents voted to elect Scott Walker, a republican, in 2010.
Walker says Mitt Romney has a record that will appeal to voters on both sides of the aisle.
"He found a way to reach across get things done, to balance the budget to do it without massive tax increases, and do it in a way that helped improve the economic climate of that state. The president talked about it four years ago but he really hasn't delivered on that" says Governor Walker.
The Governor also spoke about early voting explaining that unlike some other states Wisconsin voters do not have to register to vote by party.
Early voting has been strong, but candidates have no way of knowing who people are voting for.
Walker plans to talk with Romney on Friday about making another appearance in our area before election day.
