“The Illinois GOP has proudly ‘adopted’ Wisconsin to offer our support to Gov. Walker,” Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady said in a written statement. “Illinois Republicans will be working hard from now till June 5 to help Gov. Walker.”

The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board, which oversees the state’s campaign finance and election laws, has predicted 60 percent to 65 percent of the voting age population will turn out for the Tuesday recall, which would eclipse the 49.7 percent turnout in the 2010 general election when Mr. Walker was elected governor.

A new Marquette Law School poll released Wednesday showed Mr. Walker with the support of 52 percent of likely voters, compared with 45 percent for Mr. Barrett. The results were similar to a Marquette poll taken two weeks earlier in which the governor had a 6-percentage-point lead.
