Former Gov. Thompson campaigns for Gov. Walker

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson jumped on the campaign trail to join Gov. Scott Walker in Milwaukee and Green Bay, and support his fellow Republican's bid for re-election. The two visited Laser Form in Green Bay.

Thompson was Wisconsin's longest-serving governor, from 1987 to 2001.

Gov. Walker is committing to restoring the rule of two-thirds state funding for schools, something Thompson did while in office.

"We're going to bring him in. He changed Milwaukee County. He came up and what'd he do? He rode in from the west or the south. He came up to Madison and guess what? He changed Wisconsin back again," Thompson said.

Democratic opponent Tony Evers, the state superintendent of public schools, has also promised to restore two-thirds state funding for schools.

Evers was on the campaign trail Monday with former U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
