MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Democrat Tom Barrett is promising to provide the "adult leadership" necessary to make the difficult decisions.
Republican Scott Walker says he'll reform state government and rein in spending.
Voters will decide Nov. 2 which one will lead Wisconsin as its next governor.
Barrett and Walker easily emerged from Tuesday's primary.
Walker cruised past former Congressman Mark Neumann, while Barrett had just token opposition.
The race is being watched nationally, with Wisconsin seen as a key state in the 2012 presidential race.
Also, the next governor will be in charge as lawmakers work on the once-a-decade process of redrawing political boundaries following the 2010 Census.
