11:15 a.m.: Barrett releases new TV ad
Democrat Tom Barrett on Saturday released a new television ad that his compaign claims highlights new evidence that shows Gov. Scott Walker has been "stonewalling" the John Doe investigation into former Walker aides.
"After months of claiming he has cooperated fully with this criminal corruption probe, new evidence has come to light that shows Scott Walker has done the exact opposite,” said Barrett spokesman Phil Walzak. “Scott Walker is not a straight shooter and it's long past time this governor to come clean about why he has a criminal defense fund, why he won't release the emails, and whether he is a target of this investigation.”
