Wisconsin Democrats launched a new website on Tuesday to hold Gov. Scott Walker accountable for his record.

“Scott Walker is airing a lot of slick TV ads to rewrite history and obscure his record of failure, but the DPW’s Walker Reality Check project will counter his lies and spin with the truth. A Democratic governor will deliver the change that Wisconsin voters deserve,” said George Gillis, Executive Director, Democratic Party of Wisconsin.

The website is a counter-initiative to the slew of ads from Mr. Walker, Wisconsin Republican, in recent weeks. The topic covered include education, jobs and the economy, which have all been major highlights of the governor’s campaign so far.

Democrats say they will continue to add relevant topics throughout the campaign as they come up.

A recent poll in Wisconsin found that although the two-term governor outranks potential matchups with the variety of Democratic candidates, nearly one in three voters remains undecided. The Marquette Law School poll did not show a clear frontrunner on the Democratic side with a majority of people saying they do not know enough about any particular candidate to make a decision. The primary is set for August 14.

The survey was conducted June 13-17 among 800 registered Wisconsin voters via cell phone and landline with a margin of error of +/- 4 percent.
