Governor Scott Walker pushed back against claims that Voter I.D. rules, unfairly target those without accepted I.D.'s today.

Speaking at an event in Kiel, Walker said the laws will not complicate tomorrow's partisan primary election.

He says the legal battle over voter I.D. laws mirrors the legal battles over previous issues. He says, "(W)e believe in the end it should be easy to vote but hard to cheat." 

Those opposed to the laws, say the scope of accepted I.D. cards unfairly target minorities, the poor, and the elderly.
