Walker Starts Statewide Campaign Tour

From WisPolitics.com …

Gov. Scott Walker is hitting La Crosse, Eau Claire, Wausau, Rhinelander and Green Bay today as he kicks off a three-day tour of the state following his formal announcement of his bid for a third term.

Yesterday in Waukesha, Walker touted his administration’s record on jobs, workforce development, education and health care, but said there’s “more to be done” in asking voters to elect him to another four-year term.

“We’re not just satisfied with where we’re at. We’re ready to keep moving forward, because there’s more to be done,” Walker said.

Walker made his announcement at Weldall Manufacturing before a campaign-announced crowd of 400. Outside the facility, a large crowd organized by Voces de la Frontera protested. Many carried signs in support of immigration and refugees, and those that read ‘low-wage Walker.”

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning in a statement accused Walker of trying to reinvent himself as he seeks another term.

“Kicking off another campaign today, Scott Walker said that after seven years, he now wants to begin to focus on the rest of us in Wisconsin, but people don’t buy his latest ‘reinvented’ style,” Laning said. “It’s appalling that Walker has not been focused on all the people of Wisconsin all along. He had his opportunity, yet his actions have benefited the wealthy elite at the top while he left everyone else behind.

Today’s stops include a tailgate party ahead of the Packers game at Lambeau Field.

Tomorrow, Walker will hit Appleton, Oshkosh, Fond du Lac, Sheboygan and Janesville before Wednesday stops in Hudson, Superior, and rural southwestern Wisconsin.
