MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A document titled "War Room" that spells out Gov. Scott Walker's agenda, issues and key contacts when he was Milwaukee County executive is among newly released data.

The document that came from Walker's county computer was originally collected as part of a now-closed John Doe investigation.

The "War Room" document part of 14 gigabytes of data released by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele in response to a judge's order from May to make the information public.

The "War Room" file plots out issues he wanted to highlight, groups he wanted to target, places he planned to visit and targeted media.

Under "Issues" Walker noted the need to lobby state lawmakers on park issues and "work on new board member" on county pensions.
