Barrett says GOP cocky, overconfident (VIDEO)

With 12 days to go until Election Day, Democrat Tom Barrett took to the Capitol steps Thursday to rally his supporters.


Barrett accused Republicans of being cocky and overconfident (4:22) and compared “Republican polls” which show him trailing Walker to the college football poll which ranked Wisconsin 18th going into last Saturday’s game with number 1 ranked Ohio (4:45).

The Milwaukee mayor trails the Republican in the race for Governor, Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker, by nine points in the most recent (and most favorable to Barrett thus far) statewide poll.

The rally, ostensibly called to urge Wisconsin voters to take advantage of early voting, also featured Democratic National Committee chair Tim Kaine, U.S. Representative Tammy Baldwin, and Dane County Executive Kathleen…and perhaps 100 were in attendance on another unseasonably gorgeous October day.
