Posted Tuesday, May 29, 2012 --- 9:00 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- With a week to go before the recall vote, Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Tom Barrett are both out campaigning.

Barrett scheduled four stops Tuesday with former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold in Baraboo, Wisconsin Rapids, Marshfield and Green Bay.

Walker planned to make a campaign stop at Husco International in Waukesha in the morning and then hold an official groundbreaking and jobs announcement for Ashley Furniture in Whitehall.

Tuesday is also the deadline for both Barrett and Walker to submit their latest campaign finance reports which will show money raised and spent from April 24 through May 21.

Walker has already reported raising $25 million since he took office. Barrett has raised about $1 million for the recall.

Outside groups have spent tens of millions more on the race.
