UPDATE. Rep. Kathy Bernier (R-Chippewa Falls) in so many words: I don't stand with Scott Walker on education

Looks like Kathy Bernier might have a battle royale on her hands.

Quoted in GOP Assembly lawmaker campaigns against Scott Walker.  (, 10/8/2016)
In a piece of campaign literature provided to the Wisconsin State Journal by Democrats, Rep. Kathy Bernier says she "stood up" to Walker's cuts to education. 
Bernier is seeking a fourth term in the Assembly and voted against the 2015-17 state budget.
