As governor Scott Walker launches his re-election campaign his Democratic opponent is striking back on the issue of jobs.  During a campaign swing throughout the state Tuesday governor Walker touted the creation of 100,000 privatesector jobs during his term.  Democrat Mary Burke says that’s well below his promise of 250,000.  Responding to the governor’s comments that Wisconsin is better off than it was four years ago.  "I don't hear that from the people of Wisconsin.  What I hear is that Wisconsin is lagging the rest of the country.  We're 35th in job creation under governor Walker and we are 9th of the ten midwestern states in terms of job creation,"  Burke told AM 1170 WFDL's Between the Lines program.  Burke says we better be better off than we were four years ago after suffering through the great recession.  She says the question is why have most other states recovered quicker?
