Pence raises money for Walker in tight governor’s race

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Locked in a tight race with Democrat Tony Evers, Republican Gov. Scott Walker is looking to Vice President Mike Pence to give him a boost with the Nov. 6 election less than a month away.

Pence was holding a pair of fundraisers for Walker in Green Bay and Eau Claire on Wednesday. The events come the same day that a new Marquette University Law School poll was to be released.

The poll is the first since the blow up over confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Some Republicans have said that fight energized their voters.

Walker trailed Evers 49 percent to 44 percent in the last Marquette poll released on Sept. 18.

Walker has urged his supporters to believe the polls, while calling himself the underdog in the race.
