By Scott Bauer Associated Press MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker isn't expected to fulfill his 2010 campaign promise to add 250,000 private sector jobs by next year in Wisconsin, but he said Wednesday that he doesn't think voters will hold it against him. Walker's detractors, including Democratic gubernatorial opponent Mary Burke, have been hammering Walker on the jobs promise, hoping that voters will keep that in mind this fall when he stands for re-election.
