Gov. Scott Walker (R) “hit a new campaign theme this week, arguing Wisconsin would be less safe with a Democrat in charge.”

Walker: “You see, all those other things — health care, education, none of that matters unless you're safe.”

“Eight Democrats are running in Tuesday's primary, but Walker named just two of them — state Schools Superintendent Tony Evers and former state Rep. Kelda Roys — in contending his opponents' hopes of cutting the prison population in half would endanger Wisconsinites.”

Walker: "If that was done today, that means there would be thousands of violent criminals out on the streets."

Evers: “I think he’s lying about whatever I said about that. He’s fear mongering. I will not be releasing violent criminals.” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
