Democratic candidate for governor Mary Burke

This Sunday, CW 14 Focus host Robert Hornacek was joined by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke.

Burke is a former executive at Trek Bicycle who also served as Commerce Secretary under former Gov. Jim Doyle (D-Wisconsin).

Burke is one of the major challengers hoping to unseat current Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin).

On the show, Burke shared her thoughts on Act 10, the controversial collective bargaining measure Walker introduced early in his first term. Burke also talked about her philosophy and described what she will do if she wins.

“I’m going to sit down with Republicans and Democrats alike,” Burke said. “I want to find the common ground so that we can move Wisconsin forward. I want to end this divisiveness and this partisanship and focus on the common sense solutions.”
