"I think (Burke and Walker) are being cautious in seeing how this plays out," tribal legislator Gary Besaw said.

But some voters in southeastern Wisconsin, still suffering from declines in the manufacturing economy, are losing patience.

Michael Schumacher, a 64-year-old Kenosha author, said Walker is waffling when the area needs jobs.

"It's too hot an issue for them to handle," Schumacher said with disgust. "The best thing to do (for the candidates) is try to pretend it doesn't exist."

Ray Peeples, a 54-year-old Kenosha pastor who worries the projected job gains are exaggerated, wants the candidates to lay out their stances.

"Take a stand," he said, "one way or the other."
