MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A major Democratic group does not consider Scott Walker to be among the most vulnerable Republican governors in this fall's elections.  

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Democratic Governors Association rates Rick Scott of Florida as one of the three most vulnerable GOP incumbents -- along with Tom Corbett in Pennsylvania and Paul LePage in Maine.  

Wisconsin's Walker is in the second tier of vulnerable candidates on the Democrats' list --along with Michigan's Rick Snyder and John Kasich in Ohio. Those three represent states where voters carried Democratic President Barack Obama to re-election in 2012.  

Peter Shumlin, who chairs the Democratic Governors' group, calls Walker's main challenger Mary Burke an "extraordinary candidate" with a great chance to win.  

Most early polls show Walker leading Burke. A new Liberty Foundation poll has Walker and Burke tied at 47 percent each.
