Walker is making the case that the state’s economy is strong under his leadership and now is not the time to take a risk on Evers, the state superintendent of schools.

Evers contends that Walker is neglecting the issues people really care about, like education and health care, to further his own political career.

Walker has said he would not seek a fourth term should he win.
