Burke Taking Heat for Sections of Jobs Plan that Appeared in other Democrats' Campaigns

Democratic candidate for Wisconsin governor Mary Burke has cut ties with the consultant who crafted her jobs platform but says she will not change it.

Late Thursday, BuzzFeed reported that Burke's campaign seemed to copy sections of platforms that other Democratic candidates for governor have used, on generating jobs and economic development.

Republicans are accusing Burke of plagiarism and misleading voters.

Burke says she will stick with her jobs plan because it presents the best ideas from around the country.

Jobs and the economy have been front and center in the race for governor.
