MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke says she believes voters do care about the candidates’ views on abortion and women’s health issues, even though Gov. Scott Walker says people he meets are focused on the economy.

Burke addressed the issue Wednesday during an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s editorial board broadcast on the newspaper’s website.

Burke supports abortion rights and says she would repeal state laws requiring women to wait 24 hours before they obtain an abortion and to get an ultrasound first.

Burke says she supports the law requiring minors to tell their parents first before they obtain an abortion.

But Burke says she would veto any bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
