The protesters gathered at a Milwaukee public school recreation field and marched a few blocks to the sidewalk and street outside the home in which the governor has often said he resides.

Jennifer Epps-Addison of Wisconsin Jobs Now said it’s fair to protest outside the Walker house.

“Is the governor’s budget affecting your home?” she said. “Did the governor bring his poor choices for Wisconsin to your front door? Then there is no reason we shouldn’t show up at his front door.”

Walker’s sons took to social media last night scolding the demonstrators and suggesting only the governor’s parents live in the home.
