Romney Campaigning in Wisconsin

Janesville, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Mitt Romney brought his bus tour to Wisconsin Monday, proclaiming his intention to win the Badger State this fall.

Among those joining Romney at a rally was Republican Governor Scott Walker, who defeated a recall challenge earlier this month.

Both men said jobs and the economy are priority number one.

"We need a leader who's going to put jobs first, who believes in America," said Governor Walker. "Most importantly we need a leader who unlike the president understands that success in government is not measured by how many people are dependent on the government."

Romney also vowed to keep the Presidential campaign focused on creating jobs and stabilizing the economy.

"People in this country are having a hard time," says Romney. "These are challenging times in America, and because of [President Obama's] failed record, his campaign is having a hard time deciding what to talk about, because they'd like to talk about the economy, they'd like to talk about his record but you know, the last time his campaign slogan was hope and change. This time they're going with: we hope to change the subject."

The Walker victory has spurred confidence among the GOP that Wisconsin could be fertile ground for the Romney campaign.

Romney will continue his bus tour in Iowa later this afternoon.
