Hyers says Walker weak out state, Biden to do fundraiser next month

Tom Barrett's campaign manager said today Vice President Joe Biden will be in Madison next month to help the Dem guv nominee raise money.

Bill Hyers also said the DNC recently made a significant investment in Wisconsin that shows national Dems are committed to winning the guv's office this fall.

Hyers said the Oct. 7 luncheon at the Monona Terrace will request donations of $250.

President Obama will be in Madison later this month for a rally. Asked if he would do another fundraiser for Barrett, Hyers said details of the president's trip have not been finalized.

Hyers spoke with reporters via conference call today to make the case GOP nominee Scott Walker is emerging from the primary without a unified base and with serious problems out state.

Barrett's campaign pointed to counties like Brown, Eau Claire and La Crosse, where Walker fared poorly against Mark Neumann, as signs that his message is not resonating with voters around Wisconsin. Hyers also said Walker's extreme message will not play well outside of his base of support in the Milwaukee suburbs.

Hyers said the campaign's internal polling shows Barrett trailing Walker by five points in the Fox River Valley, not nearly enough to carry Walker to a win come Nov. 2.

"You can't run for governor of Waukesha. You have to run for governor of the state of Wisconsin," Hyers said.
