On the day that Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) crisscrossed the state announcing his intent to seek a second term, his Democratic challenger, Mary Burke, also took to the road. 

Among Burke's stops Tuesday was the Graymont Superior Limestone Plant. The former Trek Bicycle executive used the business backdrop to slam Walker, saying Wisconsin's economy is falling behind those of neighboring states.

"I am concerned about where Wisconsin is headed, and under Gov. Walker, we're lagging in terms of job creation," Burke said. "Out of ten Midwestern states, we're ninth, and in the country, we're 35th. So we need to make sure we're doing what can to create jobs. Gov. Walker's game plan is failing."

Burke says the focus needs to getting the workforce ready for careers and on the state's key industries, not just a few companies.

The two candidates face off in a Nov. 4 election.
